Rituals of Diwali:

Diwali is a national holiday in India because it is celebrated all across the country in different forms.

The festival of Diwali starts with Dhanteras, which marks the beginning of a new financial year. The second day is Naraka Chaturdasi, on which Lord Krishna killed the demon Narakasura. The third day is Amavasya, on which Goddess Lakshmi, the deity of wealth and fortune, is worshipped.

Govardhan Puja is celebrated on the fourth day and Bhai Dooj, the day when sisters worship their brothers and pray for their long life and well being, is celebrated on the last day.

During Diwali, it is a must to feast, gamble, exchange gifts among friends and families, and burst fire crackers. On this day, people also wear new clothes and worship Goddess Lakshmi and Lord Ganesha.

Diwali in Southern India marks the homecoming of ancient King Mahabali, and people decorate their houses with flowers and cow dung to welcome him. This day is Govardhan Puja.
