Diwali, or Deepavali in Sanskrit, is the Hindu festival of lights to be celebrated on 7th November in 2018.

The festival symbolises the victory of good over evil, light over darkness and knowledge over ignorance.

In Diwali festival tradition, communities in India are lit up with shimmering lights and bright colours using string lights, candles, oil lamps, crafts and of course, Rangoli; colourful floor designs made of flower petals, rice or sand.

The home truly sparkles too, with living spaces decorated with lights and small oil lamps (known as diya), while fireworks are lit, and an array of sweet treats and savoury snacks are eaten.

Pinterest tells us that last year, searches for Diwali spiked 1,704 per cent in the week of Diwali (compared to four weeks earlier), and there are nearly 500,000 Diwali-related boards on Pinterest right now.
