Diwali - Hindu celebration

The festival falls on either October or November and the date is determined by the position of the moon.
This year Diwali falls on October 19.
Diwali, which literally means ‘row of lights’, falls on the 15th day of Kartika, which is the holiest month in the Hindu calendar.

It is called the festival of lights because Diwali marks the triumph of light over darkness and good over evil.
To celebrate Diwali people set off fireworks, and lights candles called divas or diyas.
