What Is Diwali?

Diwali (festival of lights) is the Hindu celebration to signify the triumph of good over evil. It’s been celebrated for hundreds of years by millions of people worldwide but some people still haven’t heard of it…

1. Hindu Halloween?


What is Diwali? you may ask. Well, have Kelly explain it, and twenty minutes later, you find out that it is essentially a Hindu Halloween.
