Diwali, the Festival of Lights, is the best known holiday on the Hindu calendar (and it’s observed by Sikhs, Jains, and some Buddhists, too). A five day celebration of light’s victory over darkness, the festival is bright and colorful, popular with children and adults, and filled with fireworks, sweets, gifts, and other treats. This year (2012) Diwali begins on November 13.
“Regardless of the mythological explanation one prefers, what the festival of lights really stands for today is a reaffirmation of hope, a renewed commitment to friendship and goodwill, and a religiously sanctioned celebration of the simple – and some not so simple – joys of life.”
