Top 10 Reasons How Diwali is The Best Festival


1. So pretty

Do you enjoy sitting at home with a nice candle burning away? Well Diwali is amazing because you have to light as many candles or diyas as possible. Not only does everything look so pretty, but it’s the perfect opportunity to get some beautiful pictures.

2. Foodie heaven
Sure at Christmas you get turkey, and Easter is all about chocolate. But during Diwali you get an abundance of samosas, paneer, chaat, jalebis, barfi and gulan jumans just to name a few. Does it get any better? Probably not. *BRB gorging on masala chips*

3. Kind of like Bonfire Night
Sadly Bonfire Night only lasts one day, and if you’re a fan you’re probably a bit upset that it’s gone by so quickly and you have to wait a whole year for it to return. But don’t worry, because Diwali has got you covered and you still have another reason to enjoy fireworks and spend time with loved ones.


4. Many different meanings 
Diwali is celebrated not only by Hindus, but Sikhs and Jains, and each different community holds their own variation of celebration. So you definitely won’t get bored, and can always find a new way to celebrate.

5. All about family

Diwali is a great reason to spend time with your loved ones, and  there isn’t as much stress around this event as there is at Christmas. And because of this you probably won’t get into the traditional post lunch argument over the TV guide. Hurrah.

6. You get presents

A pre Christmas present will go down nicely, thank you very much. Basically what is there not to love about a festival that encourages the exchanging of gifts?

7. FIREWORKS

After Bonfire Night you usually have to wait until New Years Eve before seeing fireworks again. However Diwali means that you can still enjoy fireworks, or get the sparklers out again. Yay.

8. Games
Traditionally Diwali is the only time when gambling isn’t frowned upon in India. A bit of poker with the chance to win a few shiny pennies? Sure we can get down with that. Plus it beats a bit of charades or Guess Who.

9. New clothes 

You have the chance to wear new clothes, and get yourself glammed up as part of the celebrations. Plus, unlike Christmas there is no need to don a hideous festive jumper.


10. It lasts a while
There is no such thing as it being over too quickly, because the festival itself spans five days. And we’re more than happy with an excuse to let off fireworks, eat as much butter chicken as possible, and drink our body weight in masala chai.
