Diwali is the biggest Indian holiday. It is also called Deepavali. It lasts for five days in the month of Kartika and is marked with a lot of lighting. This year, it will start on 2nd November 2021 and the main festival day will be on 4th November.
Diwali is a festival celebrated every year by millions of Sikhs, Hindus and Jains across the world. The core message of this festival is light to triumph over darkness and goodness over evil.
This festival is held during the darkest time and is why a lot of lighting is needed. It is the season when days are shorter in some parts of the world, such as the northern hemisphere.
Since it happens on the darkest night, participants need company, proper lighting, sweets, and many festivities. This is why Diwali includes sharing delicious and sweet treats like syrup gulab jamun, barfi with family and friends.
They also create rangolis or intricate patterns using colored powder, flowers, and rice combined with plenty of lighting, including candles and fireworks.
The lights also reflect the religious side of Diwali. The main deity is Lakshmi. This is the deity of wealth, wellbeing and abundance.
The specific day to worship the goddess is during the new moon day, which is usually extremely dark. Verandas and walkways are lined up with diyas or oil lamps to invite the goddess into participants’ homes.
Diwali is one of the most important festivals for Hindus, and traditionally, businessmen consider it the beginning of the financial New Year.
People celebrate it differently depending on their location in India. However, it is a universal festival and signifies how hope overcomes despair. This year’s Diwali is expected to emphasize giving hope.
With that said, you can use some beautiful quotes, short messages and greetings available in English and Hindi to wish other people Happy Diwali. It is an easy way to light the world during the Diwali season. Here is how to send happy Diwali wishes in either Hindi or English:
