When and why is Diwali celebrated?
Diwali falls every year on the new moon of Kartik month, which is celebrated in the months of October or November.
On this day Lord Rama returned to his hometown of Ayodhya after completing his fourteen years of exile, when the people here welcomed him by lighting a lamp to greet him. Since then this day is celebrated every year as Deepawali. It is also called ‘Festival of Lights’.
Diwali is celebrated especially because it is not a festival but a festival of festivals. It fills our country with happiness.

It turns our whole year into happiness with these festivals. There are many facts associated with celebrating this in mythology and texts too. Because of all these reasons we celebrate Deepawali.
