Diwali, also know as "festival of lights", is an annual festival celebrated by millions of Hindus, Sikhs, Jains around the world. The festival symbolizes new beginnings and the triumph of good over evil, and light over darkness.

Diwali is a five-day festival of lights and celebrations.  Diwali comes from the Sanskirt word deepvali which means “row of lighted lamps.” It coincides with harvest and new year celebrations. Millions of Hindus around the world celebrate Diwali with special decorations, exchanging gifts, family gatherings and other special activities. The first day is a shopping day, especially for silver and gold. The second day is used to decorate the home. The third day is the main day of the festival with fireworks at night and feasting with family and friends. The fourth day is when spouses exchange gifts. And the final day is for siblings to spend time together.

 

 

The biggest celebration of fireworks happens on the third day of the holiday where family and friends gather together to light sky lanterns, sparklers, and fireworks. The fireworks signify the victory of light over darkness. The fireworks that are mainly used are noiseless fireworks such as sparklers, sky lanterns, and fountains that stay on the ground and omit colorful lights and effects.
