FEATURED VIDEO: Divali, Diwali or Deepawali (depending on where you are from), is one of the most joyous celebrations for Hindus, Jains, Sikhs, and some Buddhists. The name comes from two Sanskrit words: “Diyas” which means “clay lamps” and “avali” which means “rows.” During the 5-day celebration, people place rows and rows of clay lanterns around rooftops, doorways and windows, symbolizing the triumph of good over evil, hope over despair and light over darkness.
