Deepavali or Diwali is around the corner. How is your town village or you and your family geared to welcome this big Hindu festival?

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.

We in Malaysia make all the required sweets at least two weeks before Deepavali. We do our shopping for new clothes and the required house materials like curtains, carpets, sofa cover, etc. at least one week before the festival. Three days before Deepavali, we wash, clean and mop the house, put on the new curtains, bed sheets, decorative lights, etc. Early on Deepavali morning, we prepare the prayer alter, hang mango leaves and thoranam at the entrance doorway and put kolam on the floor. Everyone in the house takes an oil bath and do a morning prayer in front of the alter. After that everyone puts on new dress and seeks blessings from the parents and elders. Then we go to the temple for prayers. Back from the temple, the ladies of the house will cook vegetarian meal or lunch. After lunch, the children will go visiting to their friends house. The parents will start cooking for guests who come a visiting to the house. The entertaining of the guests will go on until night time. We call this open house as anyone can come visiting. The children will be playing with crackers and small fireworks. That`s about how we celebrate Deepavali in our country.
