Happy Diwali or Happy Deepawali to all our friends across cultures in celebrating the festival of lights.

The festival of lights symbolizes the spiritual victory of light over darkness and good over evil. It is celebrated among families of Hindus by performing traditional activities. In India, they call this festival as Deepawali. Many travel to their homelands from various places of the world to join the celebration with family members.

Culture Notes:

Diwali is on the 15th day of the month Kartika (October/November) in the Hindu calendar. The 5 day festival begins on the 13th day in the dark half of Ashwin and ends on the 2nd day in the bright half of Kartika. As the calculation is primarily based on the moon, the day of Diwali Festival varies in the Gregorian Calendar between the 17th October and 15th November every year. (source: deepavali.net)

Traditionally, they believe that the Hindu goddess of good luck visits their homes that are brightly lit. Many homes are lighted with various shapes, forms and colors during this festival of lights.

In today’s international Diwali celebrations, it is focus on family and friends; the time to reflect about the past and looking forward to what the future brings; with the international challenges many aspires that people around the world live together in harmony; that the truth overcomes false pretenses and light overshadows the darkness.
