Diwali, also known as Dipawali, is the most important holiday in India. The name of the festival is derived from the row (avali) of clay lamps (deepa) that Indians light outside their homes to represent the inner light that protects against spiritual darkness. For Hindus, this festival is as important as Christmas is for Christians. 


Diwali has evolved into a national festival celebrated by both Hindu and non-Hindu communities. Diwali, for example, commemorates Lord Mahavira's nirvana, or spiritual awakening, on October 15, 527 B.C. in Jainism, and the day Guru Hargobind Ji, the Sixth Sikh Guru, was released from imprisonment in Sikhism.


Traditionally, the weeks leading up to Diwali are spent redecorating the home, purchasing new clothes and jewellery, and exchanging gifts such as sweetmeats, dried fruits, and nuts. This is the season for dinner parties, outdoor food festivals, and craft fairs, all of which contribute to the buildup to the main Diwali celebration. 


Gambling is a part of traditional celebrations, particularly in north India, and card games are played late into the night in the weeks leading up to Diwali. These parties usually include platters of kebabs, fried savoury snacks, tandoori grills, and spiced sweetmeats, as well as plenty of finger food. There’s a lot of gifting involved at every step of the way and if you’re on the lookout for something. We’ve got the best right here lined up for you!
