Diwali is a 5 day celebration, observed in the Hindu, Jain, and Sikh community. 

Respectively known as the Festival of Lights; Diwali signifies the triumph of good over evil; or in retrospect, the awareness of ones inner light. 

During Diwali celebrations, family members come together and perform traditional activities as one; small clay lamps and fireworks are lit; new garments are worn amongst the celebrants; and an abundance of sweets & snacks are shared amongst family and friends.

Diwali, has a rich, vibrant heritage, and undoubtedly promotes community pride and unification; not just  in the Hindu, Jain, and Sikh community, but across all communities as a whole.

Let your inner light shine through!

Happy Diwali to you & yours!!!
