Diwali730.jpg

 

The Indian-American community of North Texas is preparing for the 2018 Diwali, which falls on Wednesday, November 7th.

 

Diwali, the Hindu "festival of lights," is the best known of Hindu festivals and certainly the brightest. While there are many beliefs regarding this festival, the most popular one is that this day symbolizes the victory of good over evil. Amid the dark skies of autumn, lights illumine homes throughout India and her diaspora, while families celebrate with visits to friends and relatives, gifts to each other, donations to the poor, prayers and feasts.

 

Diwali celebrations generally last for five days, beginning on the 14th day of the dark half of the Hindu calendar month of Asvina. (Every Hindu month is divided into a light half, when the moon waxes, and a dark half, when it wanes.) By the Gregorian calendar, Diwali falls in October or November. (source = dfwdiwalimela.com)
