Deepawali or Diwali is certainly the biggest and the brightest of all Hindu festivals. It’s the festival of lights (deep = light and avali = a row i.e., a row of lights) that’s marked by five days of celebrations.

People love Diwali at home and it’s the time of the year when the whole family is at one place, celebrating and enjoying. It’s also the time for activities that people do as a family. Be it decorating, cooking, shopping or crafting.
