On November 1, Celebrate Diwali with Fireworks
Diwali, known as the “Festival of Lights,” is one of the most important annual celebrations for the Hindu, Jain and Sikh faiths. Though each religion has a slightly different take on the holiday, Diwali is a five-day spiritual celebration of the triumph of hope, light and knowledge that involves an exchange of gifts, a hearty feast and—of course—plenty of fireworks. This year, the holiday begins on October 30. Prepare to celebrate the main festival night of Diwali on November 1 with your own fireworks display.
Fireworks and sparklers are traditionally used on Diwali to supply a festive atmosphere, and symbolize the ushering out of darkness by light.
The main Diwali festival coincides with the new moon, so fountains like Colorful Rain (which are similar to traditional Indian “flower pot” fireworks displays) or an assortment like Mercury will shine even brighter against the dark sky, and children can have even more fun with sparklers.
As always when using fireworks, be sure to observe all safety regulations and local laws.
