How is Diwali celebrated?

Diwali is one of the most important festivals in India, and it's celebrated worldwide on October 15th. Diwali commemorates the victory of good over evil and marks the end of the dark half of the year.

Traditionally, families gather together to exchange gifts and celebrate with a feast. Today, there are many ways to celebrate Diwali without leaving home. You can watch traditional dances and dramas performed by talented actors or dancers online, participate in candlelit rites at home or temples, colorful light lamps called dhunis throughout your house or office, enjoy tasty snacks like ladoos, pakoras, chaat masala, pani puri etc.

You can shop for festive merchandise like jewelry sets featuring auspicious symbols like elephants or coconuts accents, make an origami crane out of paper flowers using rice paper sheets & water soluble glue, listen to music played on instruments such as tablas drums, play games with your friends! There are endless options when it comes to celebrating Diwali!

One of the most popular ways to celebrate Diwali is by shopping for gifts.

Here are some tips on how to make your shopping experience enjoyable and stress-free:


  • Plan ahead! Start thinking about what you would like and find retailers that carry items similar to what you're looking for. Doing this will help reduce anxiety during browsing and avoid disappointment if something you want isn't available when you arrive at the store.
  • Bring cash or credit cards with you - not all retailers accept electronic payments these days. And remember: it's always polite to leave enough money in your wallet so there's no need to haggle!
  • If possible, try out the merchandise before buying it - this way, there won't be any surprises when it arrives home!

Have fun while shopping! There's nothing like an exciting discussion about which gift was best while grabbing a cup of coffee or tea together after completing your purchase!

Diwali, Pujas & Rituals

One ritual that is often done during Diwali is called pujas. Pujas are religious ceremonies or rituals performed to honor a deity or gods, and recitations from sacred texts or hymns accompany them. During pujas, Hindus offer prayers to their god or gods using flowers, candles, fruits, grains (usual rice), milk products (buttermilk being the most popular), ghee (clarified butter), and sandalwood paste/powder.

Another common Diwali custom involves making rangoli designs on floors, walls, doorways, windowsills - you name it! Rangoli art typically consists of geometric shapes - circles, squares, lines, stars, diamonds, etc.- made with brightly-colored sugar or rice powder.

How do Hindus perform these ceremonies?

Many different methods are used across India, but some general patterns can be observed. First, a symbolic fire is lit in honor of God or gods. This may be an indoor fire or a bonfire on land or water. Next, prayers focusing on thankfulness for blessings received during autumn are said aloud or sung. Bonemeal cakes called pujasalams are often offered to symbolize food offerings made to appease god(s). Finally, sweets such as samosas (savory pastries) and churrascoes (fried meats) are usually eaten as part-of-dinner celebrations!
