Diwali is a New Year celebration for Hindus, Jains, Sikhs, and some Muslims and Buddhists. This year, the five-day holiday falls in November. The festival of lights, popular in South Asian countries and with those of South Asian descent, is marked by oil lamps called diyas, to honor the goddess of wealth and prosperity Lakshmi and to symbolize the triumph of light over darkness. It’s a joyous time, and while it has some religious roots, it’s become a secular holiday in many areas of the world and across several cultures.

If you or someone you love is celebrating Diwali and you’d like to honor them, these happy Diwali wishes and Diwali greetings will surely brighten someone’s day.
