Printable Diwali Party Decorations, Crafts

Diwali, is a five-day Hindu new year "festival of lights." It's also celebrated by Sikhs and Jains. Diwali, or Deepavali, honors Lakshmi (goddess of prosperity) and Ganesha, the elephant-headed goddess (shown left). Diwali is a time of meditation, called puja, followed by festivities and feasting. Special sweets called "mithai" are served. In sanskrit, Diwali means "garland of lights." So candles figure heavily in Diwali decor. Diwali 2012 is celebrated from November 13-17 in the western calendar (Ashwin to early Kartika in the Indian calendar). Here are printable party decorations for Diwali celebrations.
