The fes­ti­val of Di­wali – a cel­e­bra­tion of warm au­tum­nal light that sym­bol­ises the spir­i­tual “vic­tory of light over dark­ness, good over evil and knowl­edge over ig­no­rance”. Ev­ery year, around this time, the north­ern hemi­sphere cel­e­brates the end of sum­mer with this pop­u­lar Hindu tra­di­tion, which orig­i­nated in South Asia. The evening in­volves many lights and oil lamps, vis­it­ing rel­a­tives, hav­ing feasts, and en­joy­ing fire­works! You can join in in cities such as Lon­don, Manch­ester and Birm­ing­ham.
