Shubh Diwali!

In 2013, Diwali, the festival of lights, will be celebrated on Nov. 3 by Hindus, Jains and Sikhs. The word Diwali comes from the Sanskrit deepavali, which means a row of lights.

Diwali is now commonly celebrated outside of India with modern fireworks such as sparklers, bangers and fountains instead of some of the more traditional, age old pyro built and used in India for centuries.







Sky lanterns are also becoming more popular for the festival of lights, and more and more participants are now buying fireworks online and having them delivered right to their homes.
