More About Diwali

According to legend, Diwali commemorates the homecoming of King Rama, who returned after a fourteen-year exile in the forest. Citizens welcomed him back by lighting rows of lanterns to drive away the darkness. Today, Diwali is a chance to celebrate all the joys people tend to overlook during the year—to visit friends and family, and catch up on news, while gazing at fireworks exploding overhead. It’s also time to welcome Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth and prosperity. Many businesses tempt her with beautiful decorations, and husbands have been known to lavish jewelry and other gifts on their wives.
