The Festival of Lights
Diwali, the festival of lights. A treasured time for the billions of Hindus, Jains, Sikhs and others that participate in this five-day festival honouring Lakshmi, the Goddess of Wealth. Lamps called ‘diyas’ are lit outside homes, and windows and doors are left open to help guide the Goddess Lakshmi into their homes for her blessings.
Diwali, also known as Deepavali, is about more than just bright lights, eating good food and exchanging gifts. It is considered a time for rejuvenation of the soul and a fresh start. A time to give back and forgive those around us. People around the world celebrate with a light heart, an air of freedom and friendliness that attracts others from different cultures and backgrounds to join in on the festivities of Diwali.
There are different ways people around the world celebrate Diwali. Hindus believe that Lakshmi only enters homes that are clean and cheerful. Hence, what better reason to clean up your home this Diwali? Make it a family effort, involve everyone, big or small. Nothing like teamwork for some good old family bonding.
