Diwali is a festival of light that is celebrated by millions of Hindus, Sikhs, and Jains across the world for five days. Originating in South Asia, this historic event celebrates the triumph of good over evil, each year the dates change but it is always celebrated between October and November.
The word ‘Diwali’ comes from the Sanskrit word ‘Deepavali’ meaning ‘rows of lightened lamps’. People and households around the world during Diwali cover buildings and streets in multicoloured lamps and garlands to scare the evil spirits away.
The third day of the festival known as ‘Lakshmi Puja’ is the most important, it is the last day of the year in many regions of India. The history of this day is that Lord Rama rescued his wife, from the demon Ravana. To celebrate this historic event, candles and fireworks are lit to celebrate the victory and light the way home.
