Diwali (also spelled as Deepavali) is a Hindu festival of lights. It is celebrated by Hindus every year. On the day of deepavali old and young, rich and poor wear new dresses and share sweets. They also burn crackers. The festival of Diwali signifies the killing of Narakasura, who is an evil man. So Diwali is a festival symbolising the destruction of evil forces.
