Diwali History & Significance in India

History: In some parts of the country (India) people believe that Diwali marks the celebration of Lord Rama's arrival to his home in Ayodhya after defeating the demon-king Ravana. However, some Hindus believe that Diwali is about the celebrations of Goddess Laxmi (Maa Lakshmi)'s wedding with Lord Vishnu, while some clerks say that Goddess Laxmi was born on this date and so, they celebrate it as Diwali.

Significance: This is about starting a new life full of joys and happiness. On Diwali, with a great significance, Hindus clean their houses, wear new clothes, lit the candles/lights, and talk about happiness and the victory of light over the darkness as their elder's say. On this day of Diwali, they pray for a new beginning of life and seeing the happiness in their future.
