Diwali is the festival of lights, which is celebrated every autumn in our country. This is one of the most popular festivals of Hinduism as it symbolizes the spiritual “victory of light over darkness, good over evil and knowledge over ignorance”. During Diwali celebrations, temples, homes, shops and office buildings are brightly illuminated and people tend to visit their relatives or stay with their family members at home. The preparations, and rituals, for the festival typically last five days, with the climax occurring on the third day coinciding with the darkest night of the Hindu month of Kartika. Generally, this festival falls in the month of October or November depending on the position of the stars and planets. So we are here to give you some of the best Diwali gift ideas.
