Festivals
Deepavali or Diwali

Deepavali is the festival of lights. The chief feature in the celebration of this festival, is that all bathe early in the morning rubbing their head and body with oil, though an oil bath is prohibited on the new-moon day on which the festival generally, falls. After bath they take sweets

and enjoy themselves. The children fire off crackers. All this is done as a thanks offering for ridding the world of the oppression of the Naraka by the god Krishna.
