Every year Hindus all over the world celebrate Diwali on the darkest night (Amavasya). Every Year Diwali festival starts on the lunar month of Ashwin and the start of the month of the Kartik according to the Hindu lunisolar calendar.
History of Diwali
According to ancient India and the Hindu Puranas in 5114 BC, Ram was born in Ayodhya but when ram was in early middle age, Ram Fater Dashrath gave ram to 14 years of exile. During the exile time, Demon Ravan kidnapped Seeta then Ram killed Ravan and free the Seeta from Demon. Diyas were lit in every house on that day in the joy of killing Ravana and returning to Ayodhya after 14 years.
On this day Hindus pray to the God Lakshmi and wish for good health and wealth. The house is lit up with lights and Rangoli is made. Firecrackers are also burst on this day. On this day, people prepare many types of dishes in their homes and meet their friends and relatives to congratulate Diwali. Dhanthiras is celebrated on the first day of Diwali in which many people do shopping.
