What is Diwali?

Diwali is the five-day Festival of Lights, celebrated by millions of Hindus, Sikhs and Jains across the world. It's a time to celebrate the triumph of good over evil and welcome in new beginnings. 

The word Diwali comes from the Sanskrit word deepavali which means "rows of lighted lamps". Oil lamps called diyas are an important part of the celebration, used to light houses, streets and shops. It's also a time to visit relatives, host feasts and enjoy fireworks.
