But one thing is always the same: the victory of the good over the evil or the light over the darkness is celebrated and it is about recognizing one’s inner strength. And an essential element of Diwali is the lights.
Traditionally, new lamps are bought at Diwali, and the old ones are thrown away. Because, according to tradition, new lamps will help the souls of the dead find their way to nirvana.
As soon as it gets dark, you can see the decorated windows of the houses with small oil lamps everywhere. Today also with electric light chains. One also hangs lamps in trees or places candles on the roofs. In inhabited areas, you can see the many lights from far away. They are to show the spirits of the deceased the way to the land of bliss.

Also, they send each other Diwali cards, visit friends and relatives, enjoy delicious food, and especially lots of sweets.
