Tuesday, November 2, is the first day of Diwali, a five-day “festival of lights” celebrated in India by Hindus and people of other faiths. During Diwali, Hindus light oil lamps and decorate homes to represent the triumph of light over darkness and to honor Lakshmi, goddess of good fortune.
Diwali resources available through the Yonkers Public Library and Westchester Library System.
