Diwali is the five-day Festival of Lights, celebrated by Hindus, Sikhs, and Jains across the world. It celebrates new beginnings and the triumph of good over evil, represented in the form of light over darkness hence the festival of lights.

Diwali is usually celebrated between October and November, however, the date changes much like it does with Chinese New Year. Diwali this year is on Thursday 4th November 2021 but will be celebrated on the second, third, fourth, fifth and sixth of November 2021.

The origin behind the Diwali celebrations

Although Diwali is celebrated across three religions, it is celebrated for different reasons. One of the reason’s the Hindu’s celebrate Diwali is to celebrate the day Mother Goddess Durga destroyed a demon called Mahisha. The Sikhs celebrate Diwali to commemorate their sixth guru Hargobind Singh’s release from prison in 1619 and the Jains celebrate the moment that their founder Lord Mahavira reached a state called Moksha which is also known as eternal bliss.

Diwali traditions

Diwali traditions include having many lights and oil lamps being lit on the streets and in houses, people visiting their relatives for a mighty banquet, worshipping on the Hindu Goddess of Wealth, Lakshmi to bring blessings for the new year and most importantly (to us anyway) they celebrate Diwali with Fireworks and Festivals which are an essential part of the occasion.

Fireworks are one of the best ways in this modern age to celebrate Diwali. What better way to light up the sky than with a multi-shot array of colours changing in shape, style and intensity offering a spectacle of light but also the barrage of shots and magnificent bursts fit with the celebratory theme that Diwali is all about.

Diwali celebrations 2021

If we are allowed to finally get together this year and celebrate Diwali 2021 across the beginning of November, spectacularly coinciding with Guy Fawkes 2021 this year too, then let us all make the long-awaited decision of bringing our families together to really go for it with a spectacular fireworks display.

When 2021 is over, we like to think life will be looking more positive with vaccination programmes and children being in full swing back at school, parties going ahead and restaurants and bars welcoming us back with open arms to catch up with friends. Let us celebrate these momentous occasions such as Diwali, Guy Fawkes, New Year’s in style with a whopping, amazing, loud (or quiet) fireworks display!
