Diwali is a festival associated with fond memories of childhood, firecrackers, sweets, new clothes, lighting of lamps, colourful rangolis, beautiful lanterns and fun-filled evenings with friends and family. From clothing to home decor, everything undergoes a makeover to keep up with the festive spirit.
Coloured and lit up streets, binge eating on snacks and sweets, exchanging gifts with friends and family —Diwali is a festival of happiness, lights and colours. India’s most awaited festival is a time to celebrate, feast, visit friends and family and embrace the love and togetherness we share with our beloved ones. It is also a time when people pray to Goddess Lakshmi and Lord Ganesha to bring happiness, good luck and prosperity into their lives. But, going by traditions, only homes that are clean, lit and decorated are said to receive the blessings.
