The festival celebrating ramas victory over the evil 10 headed demon in ancient hindu mythology.
A festival celebrating light over darkness, goodness over evil.
All around the world many millions of people will be celebrating, cooking food, making offerings, giving presents, a time for families to get together and enjoy themselves. Also a time for forgiveness.
Many places will be bursting with a blaze of glory as many millions of divas will be lit throughout the world.
Diwali is as special to indians as christmas is to the people of England for example. (an excuse to get together, enjoy, celebrate for everyone including non religious people or people from a different faith)
Happy Diwali everyone.
