Diwali is a ‘Festival of Lights’. Before Diwali, we clean our houses, prepare various kinds of sweets and hang lanterns in our windows. During Diwali we burn crackers, eat sweets and draw rangoli on our doorstep.

Diwali, popularly called Deepavali in some parts of India, is a festival which we all long for every year. The preparations for Deepavali start long before the festival date.
