The festival of Diwali is an important festival for Hindus because it celebrates the victory of light over darkness, good over evil and knowledge over ignorance. Many people light up their homes with candles or electric lights to signify this victory of light. And, a major part of the celebration includes a tradition called “Diyas” which means lanterns made from paper and filled with oil lamps to be lit during the festivities.
