India is a land of Festivals. Many festivals are celebrated here with great pomp and show.

Each festival has a religious or mythological significance behind it. Diwali is the most popular festival of North India. It is celebrated when Lord Ram, Sita and Lakshman returned to Ayodhya after 14 years of exile. People of Ayodhya welcomed them with lighted oil lamps. That is why it is called the 'Festival of Lights. Every year on the day of Diwali we celebrate and pay respect to the Goddess Lakshmi. People also make mud houses in which they keep the Goddess of Wealth and pray. Few days before Diwali i buy crackers such as rockets, bombs, flower pots and sparklers etc.

i start my Diwali evening by praying. Next i decorate my house with candles, flowers and rangoli. And at night I light crackers crackers. Thus thanking God for all he has given.
