It’s Lit! Well the candles and diyas are 🙂
Diwali, or Deepavali, a Sanskrit word meaning “rows of lighted lamps,” is a Hindu-originated festival celebrated in India and around the world. During the five-day celebration — also known as the “festival of lights” — clay lamps known as diyas are lit to signify the victory of good over evil.
You may notice some people in your neighbourhood with their Christmas lights on, or lighting fireworks tonight. Diwali is like Halloween and Christmas for us. Treats will be consumed and presents may be exchanged!
This weekend you can also check out Diwali Fest!
Here is a great event to take the kids to Sunday!
