Dear Mi Fans,

Diwali is an ancient Hindu festival celebrated in autumn (northern hemisphere) or spring (southern hemisphere) every year. Arguably the most important festival in Hinduism, it is an official holiday in Fiji, Guyana, India, Pakistan, Malaysia, Singapore, etc. The festival spiritually signifies the victory of light over darkness or good over evil, knowledge over ignorance, and hope over despair. Before Diwali night, people clean, renovate, and decorate their homes and offices. On Diwali night, Hindus dress up in new clothes or their best outfit, light up diyas (lamps and candles) inside and outside their home, participate in family puja (prayers). After puja, fireworks follow, then a family feast including mithai (sweets), and an exchange of gifts between family members and close friends.
