Part 2. About Diwali: Why we celebrate Diwali

While people of different religious backgrounds celebrate Diwali in their own way, it usually has a common significance. The day celebrates the victory of good over evil. It symbolizes that even on the darkest night of the year there can be light all around us. According to the Hindu mythology, Lord Rama (with Sita and Laxman) returned home after defeating Ravana on the eve of Diwali. The people of his hometown (Ayodhya) lit up the entire city to welcome them. Ever since devotees follow the same custom and welcome the gods and goddesses to their home in order to bestow their blessings.

Rangolis are a prominent part of Diwali culture as people make colorful patterns on the floor to welcome their guests.
