Diwali also known as Deepavali and the "festival of lights", is an ancient Hindu festival celebrated in autumn every year. The festival spiritually signifies the victory of light over darkness, knowledge over ignorance, good over evil, and hope over despair.

***Diwali is celebrated by Sikhs and Jains too, although for different reasons***

may all your elephants be blessed with long trunks

The story behind it seems really cool - do we have any Hindu members here?

I'm not too sure but there definitely was last year Jay and they would be unlikely to get involved with ' unnecessary debates ' regardless

Don't really want to debate it with them, I'd rather just know a little more about it! Looking at the description; it looks like it would make an amazing movie (I don't mean that disrespectfully)

Light over darkness.

Knowledge over ignorance.

Good over evil.

A positive message for all.

Peace and happiness to everyone.



What a lovely idea for

Fear is the path to the dark side.

Fear leads to anger.

Anger leads to hate.

Hate leads to suffering.

Also OP, I just did a quick Google, and apparently Diwali isn't until Thursday. So this thread is a bit early.

Celebrations usually start/finish here in the U.K. between 2ist - 23rd October so yes, I may be a bit early - but no harm done X)

According to Wikipedia, it's Diwali tomorrow in India and the rest of the world on Thursday. But I agree, no harm done obviously.

I still approve of this thread.

What I love most about this festival and it's believers is that they allow everyone to be a part of the celebration and enjoy the traditional festival without encroaching on others.

Sadly Christmas used to be a more religious celebration but this has been mostly destroyed by commercialism, money and this one guy called Santa

Happy Diwali

Happy Diwali everyone, if your interested in the celebration you should head down to leicester one time when they celebrate it, they have the whole street closed and the lights come on and there is dancing and other acts, they have fireworks afterwards also. They use to re-enact the story of Diwali in the past, but don't think they do this anymore.
All the shops are open as well, and quite a lot of people attend.
