Diwali (prounounced De-val-e) is one of my favourite holidays! It has so much meaning. In the South of India it is known by its' Sanskrit word "Deepavali" - Deepa meaning light and Avali, meaning a row. It is a major Indian festival that is very significant in Hinduism. Known as the "Festival of Lights," it symbolizes the victory of good over evil, and lamps (called diyas or kandils) are lit as a sign of celebration and hope for humankind. Diwali is celebrated for five consecutive days at the end of Hindu month of Ashwayuja. It usually occurs in October/November, and is one of the most popular and eagerly awaited festivals in India. Diwali comes exactly twenty days after Dussehra. Hindus and Sikhs alike regard it as a celebration of life and use the occasion to strengthen family and social relationships. Special treats such as Carrot payasam, Khodbale, Bessan Laddu, Badam Barfi , and so on are enjoyed and given. Shanti/Mary-Anne

ummm....i would say the day of Diwali should begin with hot jalebis, kesariya badam milk and poori sabzi. The lunch thali can be paneer tikka, masala gobhi, alu dam, dal tadka, navratna pulao, papad, chutney and gulab jamun. The evening meal can comprise samosas and laddus accompanied by lots of patakha cracking and then, the dinner can be an elaborate fare with pulao, puri/paratha, sabzi, dal, paneer butter masala,kheer and so on...
