Diwali is one of the many festivals celebrated in India. It is celebrated to celebrate the return of Lord Ram with his wife Sita, and brother Lakshmana to Ayodhya after defeated Ravana, the evil king of Lanka. It celebrates the victory of truth over lies, light over darkness and most importantly, good over evil. People wear new clothes, make rangolis, exchange gifts and sweets, light diyas, decorate their homes and burn crackers. People also celebrate Diwali by worshipping Devi Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth and money. It is believed that, whichever house is most lighted up during the night, Lakshmi will spend the night in that house. The Diwali celebration is usually very glamorous and grand.
