Diwali is a festival of lights (also known as Divali, Deepavali and Deepawali) and is celebrated for five days according to the lunisolar Hindu Calendar. It begins in late Ashvin (between September and October) and ends in early Kartika (between October and November).
The festival can be compared with Christmas in the Western world and in North India also like the New Year.
Next Diwali 2018 starts at the 6th of November.
Every year Diwali starts on a different day. Please get the next event from Wikipedia 🇬🇧.
Happy Diwali to all!
