This year the festival of Diwali falls on Wednesday 7th November. The ancient Hindu festival, also known as the Festival of Lights, dates back to ancient times in India. Originating as a festival to mark the end of the summer harvest, it's now widely observed not only by Hindus but also by Jains, Sikhs and some Buddhists. It celebrates the victory of good over evil, of light over dark and of knowledge over ignorance, with traditions including gift giving, the lighting of candles and fireworks displays.
