When is Diwali 2019?

Posted by Monika Sharma on 9th September 2019

Diwali, the festival of lights, is undoubtedly India’s biggest religious festival. On this auspicious day homes, institutions and entire neighborhoods are draped in candles, diyas and fairy lights. In urban and increasingly in rural India, Diwali has come to be associated with as a day of sweets, new clothes, new gadgets, automobiles as well as firecrackers.

Primarily a Hindu festival, Diwali is celebrated to commemorate the homecoming of the banished King of Ayodhya, Lord Rama. Lord Rama went into exile and had to spend 14 years away from him home into the woods. People commemorated his return on a moonless night and lit the entire kingdom with earthen lamps. And that is how the tradition started. Since then every year, the festival of lights has been celebrated with a lot of enthusiasm.

Not just people, even the nature is in a good mood when it comes to Diwali. The cool breezes and the temperate climate make a great time to enjoy. Usually celebrated in the month of October or November, Diwali is that time of the year which brings a lot of festivities in our lives. From Rakshabandhan to Diwali to Christmas and New Year, there are lots of festivals and occasions to celebrate.

In fact, Diwali in itself is not a one day celebration. The excitement builds up and reaches its peak on Diwali. The festivities start with Dhanteras (celebrated two days before Diwali) when people indulge in purchases of gold and automobiles. Then comes the Chhoti Diwali which is celebrated just a day before the big event. Then, of course, comes Diwali. The next day sees people celebrating Govardhan Puja and the carnival concludes with the celebration of Bhai Dooj.
