What is Diwali?

Diwali also known as Deepavali, always falls sometime between October and November. It is celebrated during the Hindu lunisolar calendar months of Ashvin. This year Diwali is being held on Sunday 12th November. The date varies each year as the Hindu calendar is based on the moon.

Diwali is a 5 day Festival of lights celebrated by millions across the world symbolising the spiritual victory of light over darkness, good over evil and knowledge over ignorance. The third day is the main celebration. As the sun sets, prayers are said then clay lamps are arranged around the house, followed by fireworks and a lavish feast.
