Diwali or deepavali is the festival of lights and it is celebrated all over the India every year. This is the biggest festival we celebrate in our family. We usually start preparing for diwali at least 10-15 day before. We clean and decorate the house, do some shopping. We also make many snacks and sweets at home. Few sweets we buy from shop as well.
We usually give a box of sweet away as a gift to relatives and friends on the new year day. We also serve to the guests who came for the new year wishes.
This year diwali is on 19th Oct 2017. But the celebration starts two days before and lasts for five days.
