Holidays on the Net is delighted to invite you to our newest holiday celebration: Diwali on the Net – celebrating the five-day Hindu Festival of Lights.
Whether with modest oil lamps or awesome firework displays, the Diwali festival illuminates Hindu homes and businesses for five spectacular days.
Come join us as we share some of the ancient mythology practiced on each of the fives days of the Diwali, including the pinnacle third day when families light their traditional diyas (oil lamps). Learn more about the origin of this ancient festival and then savor some of the sugary treats that are traditionally served during Diwali.
If you are interested in investigating more about the Hindu religion, let our introduction to Hinduism get your started. Just don’t forget to test your knowledge with our fun Did You Know? Diwali feature.
Diwali begins next Saturday October 17th, 2009.
Wishing you a prosperous and peaceful Diwali.
