Diwali and the Festival of Light

This week we are thinking about Diwali and the Festival of Light. We are reading through a book that explains what happens during Diwali. Diwali is the five-day festival of lights, celebrated by millions of Hindus, Sikhs and Jains across the world. Diwali, which for some also coincides with harvest and new year celebrations, is a festival of new beginnings and the triumph of good over evil, and light over darkness!
