Diwali: The Festival of Lights
Fireworks are the ultimate celebratory commodities, used in many different events to celebrate special occasions such as the 4th of July, New Years, weddings, birthdays, and anniversaries. Fireworks are also used in different cultures for many different traditions and celebrations.
One of the major traditions is Diwali, which is referred to as the Hindu Festival of Light. Diwali is India’s biggest and most popular holiday of the year. It symbolizes the spiritual victory of light over darkness, good or evil, and knowledge over ignorance. The festival lasts five days, and occurs from mid-October to mid-November. In 2018, Diwali falls on November 7th.
The five days of Diwali consist of special decorations, exchanging gifts, family gatherings and other special activities. 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.
