On behalf of everyone at Vanguard, we extend our warmest wishes to all those who celebrate Diwali.
Diwali, known as the Festival of Lights, stands as India’s grandest celebration of the year, generally symbolizing the triumph of good over evil and light over darkness. Celebrated over five days, Diwali is marked by the rows of brightly burning clay lamps that celebrants leave outside of their homes, symbolizing the inner light that protects against spiritual darkness.
Throughout this five-day celebration, people come together for festive gatherings, firework displays, delectable feasts, and moments of prayer.
Sweets take center stage in the array of common Diwali foods. Indian sweets, known as Mithai, are primarily crafted from a blend of flour, milk, sugar, nuts, and ghee. These delectable treats are prepared and enjoyed by many throughout the festive celebration, often serving as thoughtful gifts for guests.
In 2023, the main Diwali festival will be celebrated on Sunday, November 12th, with festivities extending from November 10th to the 15th.
We wish you a radiant and Happy Diwali!
