Practices and Traditions of Diwali

Is a five day Hindu festival of Lights
During Diwali
homes are cleaned to welcome
 the Goddess of Wealth
into their homes

Candles and lamps
are lit as a greeting
to Laksmi

The Indian New Year
is celebrated at the end of Diwali

On this day
everyone wears something new
to signify abundance in their lives
