Happy Deepavali

Happy Deepavali / Diwali to all my Indian and Sikh friends.

Deepavali is also known as Diwali, or the Festival of Lights. Light is significant in Hinduism cause it signifies goodness. So, during the Festival of Lights, 'deeps', or oil lamps, are burned hroughout the day and into the night to ward off darkness and evil. Diwali is celebrated on the last day of the last month of lunar calendar.
