Hey everyone! Your friend, Sara here.
Want to know why and how Diwali is celebrated in parts of India?
7 year old Kavya is a Bookosmian from Kolkata who loves to write.
This is her very own composition. She is extremely caring and loves to share her views for all Bookosomians to read.
Diwali is her favourite festival .
Hurrah!! It is Diwali, the festival of lights and brightness and joy!!
We celebrate Diwali because Ram,Sita and Laxman returned to Ayodhya from exile, on this day . We burn fire crackers, decorate our houses with diyas and illuminate with multi- coloured lights.
We give gifts, sweets and chocolates to our friends, family members and neighbours. We also wear new clothes and jewelleries and visit our near and dear ones to greet each other.
We worship Goddess Lakshmi and Lord Ganesha on this day and also do lots of shopping on Dhanteras. We draw colourful rangolis on the floors, light candles, put wall hangings and thorans to welcome our guests with pleasure. We also make yummy dishes as Daawat in Diwali like halwa, dahi vada, kachodi etc. Since it’s a religious festival, we also go for Puja with our family members.
Diwali is one of the biggest festival celebrated in India.
