Well, I live in India. India is a diverse country where people related to different casts, creeds, and religions are living together. They celebrate a plethora of festivals according to their religion such as Holi, New Year Day, Krishan Janmashtami, and so on. But here I would like to talk about a national festival named “Diwali” which is also my favorite festival. I describe it briefly.
Diwali is a Hindu and Sikh festival of lights. This is celebrated by people every autumn. Diwali symbolizes as the spiritual victory of light over the darkness, good over the evil and knowledge over illiteracy. It was believed that light is the metaphor for information and concentration. During this festival, homes, shops, temples, and offices are brightly illuminated. It spreads light everywhere.
A few days before this festival, people clean, renovate and decorate their homes. At the day of Diwali, humans get up early in the morning. They wear new clothes and go to the market for shopping. There, they purchase sweets, gifts, fireworks, and so on. After it, they distribute presents and sweets in their near and dear ones.
In the evening of Diwali, Human beings celebrate this festival with great enthusiasm. They worship their goddess “Lakshmi”. After this worship, they open the doors as well as windows. They believe that Lakshmi is the goddess of money and Lakshmi will come to their homes.
Eventually, I celebrate Diwali with my family as same as others celebrate it. I give sweets and new clothes in poverty-stricken people. I do not like to break the fireworks. Because it becomes a cause of degradation in the environment. I grow some plants on the occasion of Diwali. So, I like to celebrate clean and green Diwali.
