Diwali, or Deepavali, is by far the most popular and extravagant festival of the Hindu Religion. Its significance is that Diwali is also celebrated by the followers of Buddhism, Jainism, and Sikhism in various forms and customs. It will not be an exaggeration to repute this festival as the biggest festival in India. Diwali is also celebrated in various parts of the world with equal enthusiasm. It is known as the “Festival of Lights.”

Diwali or Deepavali is made up of two words – “Deep,” which means Lamp or Diyas, and “Avali,” which means a row of lamps. It symbolizes the victory of Goodness and the lifting of spiritual darkness. It is celebrated on the 15th day of the dark fortnight, “Amavasya,” in the Hindu month of Kartik. This usually falls in October or November.

Diwali has the status of being the favorite festival of Indians. Homes are decorated, lamps are lit, and the sounds of firecrackers engulf the atmosphere to create a world of fantasy around us. The festivity and enthusiasm linked with Diwali go on to make it the most glamorous festival in India. It is also a gazetted holiday in India. Government Offices, post offices, and banks are closed in India on Diwali.
