Why Celebrate Diwali

Diwali is one of the most popular festivals in India and is celebrated with great enthusiasm and zeal by people of all ages and religions. The festival of lights, as it is commonly known, is a five-day celebration that signifies the victory of good over evil, light over darkness, and knowledge over ignorance.

There are multiple reasons why Diwali is celebrated, but the most common one is the return of Lord Rama to Ayodhya after he defeated Ravana, the demon king who had abducted his wife, Sita. The people of Ayodhya welcomed Lord Rama by lighting diyas and candles, and this tradition has continued ever since.

Another reason why Diwali is celebrated is to honor the goddess of wealth, Lakshmi. It is believed that on this day, Lakshmi visits every home and blesses them with prosperity and good fortune. Many people also associate Diwali with the start of a new year and clean their homes to welcome the goddess of wealth. They also wear new clothes and offer prayers to Goddess Lakshmi, the Hindu goddess of wealth and prosperity.

Apart from these, Diwali is also celebrated to mark the end of the harvest season in India. Farmers in rural areas offer prayers to the gods for a good harvest and seek their blessings for the coming year.

Apart from India, Diwali is also celebrated in other countries such as Nepal, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Singapore, and Fiji. The festival is a symbol of unity and peace and brings people of different cultures and religions together.

Overall, Diwali is a festival that spreads joy, happiness, and positivity. It is a time for families and friends to come together and celebrate, and to spread love and kindness to those around them.
