Diwali, also known as Deepavali, begins November 4th and is a major festival celebrated over five days in many parts of India by people of different faiths including many Hindus, Jains, Sikhs, Muslims and some Buddhists. It is sometimes referred to as “the festival of lights,” and removing the darkness of ignorance. The Hindu American Foundation has a free Diwali Toolkit available for download. The toolkit is constructed as a way to learn more about Diwali in an interactive and enjoyable way, and can be used by educators and parents alike!
