Deepawali or Diwali is the most important and national festival that is enjoyed by most Indians regardless of faith: Hindus, Jains, Buddhists, and Sikhs. It’s the festival of lights which means rows of lighted lamps.
In this festival, people light up their houses and shops. During this festival, people worship Lord Ganesh for good welfare and prosperity and people also worship goddess Lakshmi for wealth and wisdom.
This festival is celebrated in the Hindu month of Kartik which falls sometime during the October or November months. It is celebrated to mark the return of Lord Ram from 14 years of exile and his victory over the demon Ravan, victory of the good or the evil. In many parts of India Diwali is celebrated for five consecutive days.
Indian celebrates diwali with family gatherings, glittering clay lamps, festive fireworks, strings of electric lights, flowers, sharing of sweets, and worship to Lakshmi. Some believe that Lakshmi wanders the Earth looking for homes where she will be welcomed so they open their doors and windows and light lamps to invite Lakshmi in.
