My favorite holiday is Diwali or Deepavali. It is also called “The Festival of Lights.” It is celebrated in October or November by Hindus in India & the Indian Diaspora. It originated more than 2,500 years ago.

Multiple stories are linked lớn this celebration. One story from northern India tells the story about the great King Rama, one of the avatars of the Hindu god Vishnu. According to the Ramayana, an ancient epic, Rama returned khổng lồ his kingdom after fourteen years of exile, và defeating the evil demon Ravana, who kidnapped his wife, Sita. On his arrival to Ayodhya, his kingdom, people welcomed him by lighting lamps called diyas. A popular story from southern India is about the Hindu god Krishna, saving sixteen-thousand women from Narakasura, an evil king. In both stories, it is a victory of good over evil. Diwali is also a celebration of goddess Lakshmi.

On the day of Diwali, I like to visit temple, where I pray khổng lồ Mother Lakshmi. We worship Goddess Lakshmi for peace, prosperity, và wealth.

I also wear new Indian clothes, such as a kurta for men & a sari for women.

We light our homes with diyas, an oil lamp made from clay. We light them by using a cotton wick dipped in ghee or oil. This is one of the reasons that Diwali is called as “The Festival of Lights.” This signifies the victory of good over evil và the dispelling of darkness. We also nói qua sweets with our friends và family.

There are many delicious milk sweets, cashew sweets, and almond sweets my family prepares, but out of all of these delectable desserts, my favorite is Gulab Jamun. It is a milk sweet soaked in a sugar syrup.

The most enjoyable part of Diwali for me và my most favorite part of diwali, is lighting sparklers with my family. The magnanimous light of the sparklers và saying “Happy Diwali” lớn my family helps me find the true spirit of Diwali, which is togetherness. This reminds me of the Fourth of July, because both of them have grand celebrations.

There are so many celebrations around the world lượt thích Halloween & Thanksgiving, but my favorite is Diwali. Diwali gives us hope for new beginnings. Diwali brings all of us together in the spirit of celebration, joy, and happiness.
