Deepawali is one of, if not the most popular Hindu festival celebrated by not just Hindus but people from different religions all over India as well as the world. Perhaps because of the pomp and show that is involved with Diwali, the festival is also known as the “Festival of Lights”. The word “Deepawali” consists of two words. The word “Deep” means “light” and the word “avail” means “a row”. Hence, “Deepawali” means “a row of lights”.
Diwali occurs during late October or during early November. It is important to know that the Diwali date falls on the 15th day of Kartik, which is a Hindu month. Hence, the exact Diwali date varies every year.
