Diwali is known worldwide as the festival of lights. It is celebrated every year during the autumn in the northern hemisphere and spring in the southern hemisphere. Being one of the most popular festivals of Hinduism it signifies the victory of light over darkness, knowledge over ignorance, good over evil and hope over despair. During this time, thousands of lights can be seen shining around temples, on housetops, outside doors, and windows all across countries where it is observed. Diwali normally extends over a five-day period, but the main day of the festival in on the new moon night of the Hindu month of Karthika.

Diwali 2017 will begin on Wednesday, the 18th of October and will continue for 5 days until Sunday, the 22nd of October. Diwali is one of the happiest holidays in India and Nepal. People who observe this festival clean their homes and decorate them in time for the festival. Diwali is also the biggest shopping seasons in India and Nepal. Everyone buys new clothes, gifts, kitchen utensils, appliances, sweets, dry fruits, and seasonal specialties depending on regional harvest and customs, and even expensive ...
... items like gold jewelry for themselves and their families. Children are told ancient stories and legends about battles between light and darkness or good and evil by their parents and elders.

Even though many gods are worshiped during Diwali Puja, Laxmi Puja and Ganesh Puja are two of the major pujas that people perform. Laxmi, the goddess of wealth, and Vishnu's wife, is believed to visit her devotees and bestow gifts and blessings upon everyone. The third day of Diwali is believed by most to be the most auspicious day of the five days. Laxmi Puja is performed on this day. Goddess Laxmi is invited into the homes of devotees to receive the gifts offered to her by the devotees. The sun sign Libra is believed to advocate the balancing and closing of account books as on this day. It is known that the Sun enters its second course and passes the constellation of Libra. At the beginning of every Puja, Lord Ganesha is worshiped as Vighneshvara. Goddess Laxmi is worshiped as Mahalakshmi who is the goddess of wealth and money. Mahasaraswati who is the goddess of knowledge, and Mahakali who is the epitome of power are also prayed to. Laxmi and Ganesh Puja are therefore a very central part of Diwali celebrations. Let's all show devotion to the Gods and celebrate the festival of lights with peace and prosperity, spread light where there's darkness, and celebrate Diwali in its true spirit.
