WHAT IS DIWALI: The literal meaning is “rows of lighted lamps” which is why it is often referred to as the “Festival of Lights”. In India, Diwali marks the beginning of a new year. It is a colorful, vibrant celebration with all your family, friends, and community, to welcome good fortune, and a fresh new beginning. The illumination of homes with lights and the skies with firecrackers is an expression of homage to the heavens for the attainment of health, wealth, knowledge, peace and prosperity.
