Happy-Diwali-2-300x225

The festival can be compared on the basis of his spiritual and social significance, and his cheerful character with Christmas in the Western world. In North India, Diwali is also the New Year.

Diwali – Festival of Lights
Diwali is a festival of lights (also known as Divali, Deepavali and Deepawali), and is celebrated for five days according to the lunisolar Hindu Calendar. It begins in late Ashvin (between September and October) and ends in early Kartika (between October and November).
Diwali – Festival der Lichter
Diwali oder Dipavali oder Divali oder Deepavali (Hindi, दीवाली, dīvālī „Anordnung von Lichtern”, Tamil, தீபாவளி, dīpāvaḻī „Weg des Lichts”), das Lichterfest, ist ein bedeutendes mehrtägiges hinduistisches Fest in Indien und anderen vom Hinduismus geprägten Ländern, zum Beispiel im Inselstaat Mauritius, in Suriname sowie in der indischen Diaspora. Das Fest kann auf Grund seiner spirituellen sowie sozialen Bedeutung und seines fröhlichen Charakters mit Weihnachten in der westlichen Welt verglichen werden. In Nordindien ist Diwali gleichzeitig der Neujahrstag.
