Deepavali

During the new moon that occurs between mid-October and November, the night skies of Sri Lanka blazes with light.  One of the most significant events in the calendar of Hindu believers, the Deepavali Festival dates back to the time of the epic tale of Ramayana.

Celebrating the victory of light over darkness, reminding mankind that goodwill always overcomes evil, this festival makes its believers reflect into their lives, regroup and root their belief in positivity and inspiration. 

Commemorated by Hindu believers across the world, the Festival of Light is a celebration of color, radiance and much excitement.  Prior to the festivities, the Hindu families clad in vibrant attires visit their respective Kovils and engage in traditional religious customs.  Back in their homes the kitchens exude tantalizing aromas of decadent delicacies, their the floors are adorned colorful kolams and festive music echoes from Hindu temples and residences.

As the night draws close every nook and corner of Hindu households ablaze with light through lighted lamps. On the night of Deepavali the fireworks that dances across the skies is truly a spectacular sight!
