This year, Diwali, or Deepawali, falls on Saturday, 14 November. According to Hindu Puranas, Deepavali is celebrated on the Amavasya Tithi of the Kartik month, but it is also believed that the date of Amavasya starts in the evening, ie Pradosh Kaal, and in the middle of the night.

The houses are lit with fairy lights, decorated with diyas and people dress up in their best traditional attires to celebrate the day. Families come together to celebrate Diwali and worship idols of Lord Ganesha and Goddess Lakshmi on this auspicious day.

People visit their friends and relatives on Diwali and present each other with chocolates, dry fruits, sweets and other gifts. Diwali brings with it the joy of togetherness and festivity.
