Diwali Party Planning

Diwali or Deepavali, the Hindu festival of lights, takes place every year. Lasting for five days, it is one of India’s largest celebrations. The event itself occurs during the fall (Northern Hemisphere) or spring (Southern Hemisphere).

Traditionally, this Hindu feast celebrated the conclusion of an agricultural year. Today, Dwali also marks the conclusion of one fiscal year and the beginning of a new one. Prayers of blessing and gratitude are extended to Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth, during Diwali.
