Diwali or Deepavali or Deepmala is the festival of illumination ( light ) that is celebrated with great enthusiasm not only in India but other parts of the world also. This is the biggest festival of the Hindus that comes either in October or in November. This year this Diwali festival will fall on 11th of November, twenty days after the celebration of Dussehra Festival on 22nd of October. The legend behind it is that Lord Rama had returned to Ayodhya along with his consort Sita and brother Laxman after spending 14 years of exile and killing demon Ravana. The people of Ayodhya gave them hot welcome by burning earthen lamps ( Diyas ). As the whole of Ayodhya was illuminated by lamps, the festival got its name Diwali.
Most Greeting Cards Of Happy Diwali :
The whole of markets and localities are decorated and illuminated with fancy lights ( diyas are replaced by electric lights and candles these days ). The preparation begins a few days ago. White wash and paints are the common sights during these days. Needless to say, the markets are over-crowded with shoppers getting crazy for purchasing each and every thing they can. These days online shopping has become bigger craze. The more crowd of costumers can be seen at the Sweets Shops and Cracker Stalls. It would be true to say that this festival belongs more to children for they get the chance to play with fireworks and eat sweets ( though these days they are not fond of eating them, therefore sweets are substituted by chocolates and toffees ).
Greeting Cards Of Happy Dipawali :
he festival begins with Dhanteras followed by Naraka Chaturdasi. We in our childhood would call them Kaani Diwali or Mori Diya and Chhoti Diwali respectively. On Dhanteras people worship Wealth. They purchase metals like gold or silver as per their capacity and at night worship it wishing more prosperity for themselves ( money begets money policy works here). On Chhoti Diwali also people do the worship and preparation for the next day. Then comes the main festival called Badi ( Big ) Diwali the next day. The day is very hectic. There is much work like giving final touch to all preparations. Shopping reaches its climax. Time flies and lo ! the evening comes, the most important part of this festival. The whole of the city wears the look of a bride.
