  • Cassidy's Cultural Corner - Diwali - The Festival of Lights

Diwali is India's biggest and most important holiday.  Its name comes from the row (avali) of clay lamps (deepa) placed in front of homes.  The festival celebrates the Hindu New Year.  It is a celebration of the victory of light over darkness and the triumph of good over evil.  

Diwali takes place every year in late October or early November, depending on the cycle of the moon. The festival starts two days before the new moon comes up.  In 2020, the Diwali celebrations go from November 12 through the 16.
