Diwali is the Hindu festival of lights and is also celebrated by Sikh and Jain communities.
The word Diwali means 'rows of lighted lamps'. Diwali is known as the 'festival of lights' because houses, shops and public places are decorated with small oil lamps and lanterns. These lanterns are generally hung in front of homes during the Hindu festival of lights.
