About Diwali:

Diwali is the five-day Festival of Lights, celebrated by millions of Hindus, Sikhs and Jains across the world.

Diwali, which for some also coincides with harvest and new year celebrations, is a festival of new beginnings and the triumph of good over evil, and light over darkness.

The word Diwali comes from the Sanskrit word deepavali, meaning "rows of lighted lamps".

Houses, shops and public places are decorated with small oil lamps called diyas. People also enjoy fireworks and sweets too, so it's really popular with children.

Traditions

Many lights and oil lamps are lit on the streets and in houses
People visit their relatives and have feasts
Fireworks and festivities are an essential part of the occasion
Lakshmi, Goddess of wealth is worshiped
