Diwali Days

I love this time of the year as the real festivity begins to take place. Navratri, Diwali, Halloween, Christmas and more.

Diwali, Deepavali or Dipavali is a four-to-five day-long festival of lights, which is celebrated by Hindus, Jains, Sikhs and some Buddhists every autumn in the northern hemisphere.
It is fun to Rangoli. Rangoli is an art form, originating in the Indian subcontinent, in which patterns are created on the floor or the ground using materials such as colored rice, dry flour, colored sand or flower petals. It is usually made during Diwali or Tihar, Onam, Pongal and other Hindu festivals in the Indian subcontinent.

Diwali or Deepavali  symbolises the spiritual “victory of light over darkness, good over evil and knowledge over ignorance”  During the celebration, temples, homes, shops and office buildings are brightly illuminated.  The preparations, and rituals, for the festival typically last five days, with the climax occurring on the third day coinciding with the darkest night of the Hindu Lunisolar month Kartika.

Diwali is also marked with fireworks and the decoration of floors with rangoli designs. Food is a major focus with families partaking in feasts and sharing mithai.
