Happy Diwali to all.

Diwali or Deepavali (Hindi: दीपावली, दिवाली; Kannada: ದೀಪಾವಳಿ; Urdu: دیوالی; Tamil: தீபாவளி; Telugu: దీపావళి; Marathi and Konkani:दिवाळी) is a significant festival in Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, and Jainism, and an official holiday in India.

Adherents of these religions celebrate Diwali as the Festival of Lights. They light diyas—cotton string wicks inserted in small clay pots filled with oil—to signify victory of good over the evil within an individual.

Firecrackers and fireworks are popular on the eve of Diwali.
