Diwali, also known as the Festival of Lights, is a five-day celebration that commemorates the triumph of light over darkness, or good over evil. It’s celebrated by Hindus, Sikhs, Jains, and some Buddhists around the world in different ways every year around mid-October to mid-November. The name “Diwali” comes from the rows of clay lamps (deepa) that Indian households light outside their homes during the festival to symbolize the inner light that protects from spiritual darkness.
In addition to lighting clay lamps for the festival, some revelers use sparklers, fireworks, lamps, and candles to celebrate Diwali. We’d love to be part of your plans if you’re celebrating Diwali this year. Here are some ways to enjoy the Festival of Lights with our gold sparklers and more.
