Deepawali is India’s biggest and most important Hindu religious festival. It is celebrated to mark the symbolic victory of light over darkness or good over evil. It is believed that on this day Lord Rama who was in exile for 14 years returned to Ayodhya along with his wife Sita and brother Laksman after killing The demon king Ravana.
People celebrated that day by lighting lamps in their homes. We still celebrate this day every year to honor the return of Lord Rama. Deepawali day is a very important day in the lives of Indian people, especially for the kids.

Diwali celebrants start cleaning and whitewashing their houses days before in preparation for the holy festival. Markets and shops are specially prepared and decorated for the King of Hindu festivals, Deepawali. Decorations, new clothes, sweets, and fireworks are the main attraction.
Special pooja for the Lakshmi the Goddess of Wealth is performed in homes at night. People keep their home doors open at night for the Goddess Lakshmi for prosperity and wealth. It is believed that she will visit their homes and bestows gifts and blessings on them.
Homes are decorated with colorful Rangolis and Diyas (Earthen Oil Lamps). All family members gather for the fireworks fun on the roofs or open yard.
