oil lamps lit for DiwaliWhat is Diwali?

For those unfamiliar with Diwali, it is the four- to five-day-long festival of lights and is one of the most popular Hindu festivals. The celebration symbolizes the “victory of light over darkness, knowledge over ignorance, and good over evil.” Light represents knowledge and consciousness, which is why temples, homes, shops, and even office buildings are brightly lit during the festival.

Diwali entails many preparations and rituals which usually last five days, the height of which takes place on the third day. At this point, those observing the festival will wear their finest clothing and illuminate both the inside and outside of their homes with oil lamps. They will also offer worship to Lakshmi, goddess of prosperity and wealth; light fireworks; and enjoy family feasts.
