We are celebrating Diwali this year on 19th October, 2017, Wednesday. Deepawali is also known as the festival of lights. It is our festival celebrated in autumn every year. The Diwali festival spiritually signifies the victory of light over darkness. When Lord Rama killed ravan and came back to ayodhya. People of ayodhya celebrated this occasion, they decorated whole city with diyas and lights.
Now we all celebrate diwali with full of joy and happiness. It spreads love and prosperity all over the world. Before Diwali we all clean, renovate and decorate our homes with lights and candles. Diwali night, We all dress up in new clothes for Goddess Laxmi and Lord Ganesha Puja.
