My favorite festival is Diwali. This is a festival of lights and sound. It is an important and popular Hindu festival. It is celebrated all over India and world.
Laxmi Pooja is performed on this day. | Shop-keepers perform this Pooja in their 1 shop as well as at home.
And new accounts are opened. People greet their relatives and friends with sweets and crackers.
The houses are completely cleaned and whitewashed. As the evening approaches the houses are lit with candles and electric lights.
At night crackers are fired. Children are warned to be careful while bursting crackers because any neglect could cause burns.
Diwali marks the coming of the new season. It marks the return of Lord Rama to Ayodhya after his victory over Ravana.
Diwali brings peace and joy and this makes it my favourite festival.
