There are so many public holidays celebrated in my country but i would like to speak about Diwali also known as Deepavali and the "festival of lights", is an ancient Hindu festival celebrated in autumn every year. This is my favorite public holiday and this festival comes in the month of October or November. It is celebrated in the memory of lord Ram because he returned back to his city Ayodhaya after 14 years exile. The festival spiritually signifies the victory of light over darkness, knowledge over ignorance, good over evil, and hope over despair.

Before Diwali night, people clean, renovate and decorate their homes and offices. On Diwali night, Hindus dress up in new clothes or their best outfit, light up earthen lamps and candles inside and outside their home, participate in family prayers typically to Lakshmi – the goddess of wealth and prosperity.

On this festival, i also decorate my house with electronic lights and on Diwali night, i worship lord Ganesha and goddess Lakshmi with my family members for the prosperity of my family and friends. After worship, people share sweets and also exchange gifts with family members, relatives and close friends.
