Diwali is celebrated in September–November. This year Diwali will start on Tuesday, the 13th of November and will continue for 5 days until Saturday, the 17th of November. Also called the Festival of Lights, Diwali means “row of lamps” is one of the largest and most important festivals of the year for Hindus. The festival involves lighting small lamps, called divas, filled with oil to signify the triumph of good over evil. It is also celebrated with fireworks, cleaning the home, wearing new clothes and decorating with lots of lights. In business it is often used to start a new accounting year, and it also celebrates a successful harvest. Families and friends exchange sweets and dried fruits.
