History of the Holiday

The origins of Diwali can be traced back to ancient India, where the festival marked the end of the harvest. More recent references to the festival are Sanskrit ๐Ÿ“œ Texts, the largest of which were written towards the end of the first millennium AD.

Over time Diwali evolved into a celebration of the triumph of good over evil and enlightenment over ignorance. Yet in different regions and in each individual Indian tradition the appearance of the Festival of Lights is associated with its own legends or historical events.

Thus, a popular one is the story of ๐Ÿ˜‡ Lord Rama, who after years of exile returned to his native kingdom with victory over the evil ๐Ÿ‘น Demon Ravana. On the day of his arrival, which later became known as Diwali, the townspeople greeted Rama with burning Diyas, decorations, and the sound of ๐Ÿงจ Firecrackers.

The festival is also associated with the goddess of wealth, Lakshmi, and with Krishna's deed of killing the villain. In eastern India, Diwali praises the goddess Kali, and in the northern part of the country, the festival marks the beginning of the new year. Sikh and Jain festivals are dedicated to their own gods and events.
