Diwali is celebrated by the Hindu and Sikh community. Its date varies each year since it follows the Hindu calendar (which is based on a variation of the lunar cycle). It usually falls around October/November. 

There are a number of origins of Diwali varying across different parts of India. One of the popular reasons for celebrating Diwali is taken from the Hindu Epic the Ramayan, in which Lord Rama returns to his kingdom of Ayodhya with his wife and brother after 14 years of exile, during which he defeated the demon Ravana. The people of Ayodyha lit oil lamps along the way to light up their path in the darkness - possibly why this is called the festival of light.

Diwali is also a time of worship, particularly of Lakshmi, the Goddess of Wealth. Hindu families will wear new clothes, exchange gifts and Indian sweets (and increasingly Greeting Cards too!) and light fireworks. Candles are lit around the home. Prayers are held at home or in local temples, followed by family gatherings and feasts.

Diwali is a new year celebration in the Hindu calendar, and a time to pray to Lakshmi for a prosperous year ahead. Many new business ventures are started at this time of year in India.
