Victory of light over darkness

According to Wikipedia, Diwali, or as it is sometimes called, Deepavali or Dipavali, is a Hindu festival, which is celebrated every autumn in the northern hemisphere (or spring in southern hemisphere). Diwali symbolises the spiritual “victory of light over darkness, good over evil and knowledge over ignorance.”

During the celebration, temples, homes, shops and office buildings are brightly illuminated. The preparations, and rituals, for the festival typically last five days, with the climax occurring on the third da.  

In the lead-up to Diwali, celebrants will prepare by cleaning, renovating, and decorating their homes and workplaces. During the climax, revellers adorn themselves in their finest clothes, illuminate the interior and exterior of their homes with oil lamps or candles, offer worship to Lakshmi, the goddess of prosperity and wealth, light fireworks, and partake in family feasts.
