What are Hindu festivals?

As Hinduism is an old and diverse religion, there are many festivals or celebrations observed throughout a calendar year. These Hindu festivals are a mix of religious and cultural celebrations based on a community’s ethnicity and geographic location.

Diwali and Holi are the two biggest celebrations for Hindus around the world.

Diwali is the Festival of Light celebrated by Hindus globally. It generally falls sometime between mid October to mid November, depending on the Hindu lunar calendar.

The festival symbolizes the triumph of light over darkness or good over evil. Hence the significance of the lamp during this celebration.

Besides the oil lamps, there are other design elements like the ornate paisley, Hindu Gods, the Om symbol, mandalas or even fireworks that can be used when creating something with a Diwali vibe.
