Diwali (also known as the Festival of Lights, and Deepawali) is possibly the most popular of all the festivals to have orginated in South Asia. This is an occasion celebrated by Hindus, as well as Sikhs and Jains, and everyone is welcome to join in.
Diwali orginated as a harvest festival in ancient India, but through the years a number of legends and rituals have been attached to the occasion, which may vary to an extent in different countries. Nonetheless, Diwali is a celebration of life, compassion, generosity and all good things.
