Diwali Celebration in Puffin Class

Diwali is a festival celebrated by several people of Indian origin

We learnt:

  • Diwali is a festival celebrated by several people of Indian origin – Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists and Jains
  • Diwali is celebrated in late October or early November, usually around the same time of the year as Guy Fawkes night and Halloween
  • Diwali literally means “row of lighted lamps” but it is remembered as the Festival of Lights. It is a celebration of good over evil. It marks the beginning of the (Hindu) New Year. It also marks a successful crop harvest in India.

We made Divas and decorated them so we could place tealight candles in them.
