In Bengal, there are two pujas performed on the day before Diwali. One is Lakshmi Puja and the other one is the main Kali Puja.

Noted about the poojas. How do the town and villages celebrate this festival? Is there much pomp and pageantry? How many days does the festivity last? How about public holidays? In the homes how do you celebrate? Do you make a lot of sweets and special food? Do people in the village or towns visit each other homes to spread the goodness and joy of the festival?

Hi Maniam. In Diwali, we make varieties of sweets as well as savoury items or snacks items at our home. This is because, during Diwali many of my relatives and friends come to visit us and we serve them our homemade sweets and snacks. So yes, we do make a lot of sweets and special foods in Diwali and yes again, people do visit each others` homes to spread the goodness and joy of the festival.
