Diwali

Diwali is the Hindu ‘Festival of Lights’
This festival is held in honour of Lakshmi, the Hindu Goddess of wealth and prosperity and Ganesh, the Hindu God of wisdom and good luck. Lights known as Diwas are burnt to make the Gods feel welcome.

Diwali celebrates the return of Rama and Sita, in a story known as ‘The Ramayana’.
Diwali is also celebrated by Sikhs.

The Diwali box contains artefacts in celebration of the festival that shows good conquering evil and light overcoming darkness.
