Diwali (दीवाली) is a Hindu "festival of lights" celebrated at the new moon in the month of Kartika, around the time of the autumn harvest, autumnal equinox, and the start of the winter sowing. Hiltebeitel mentions claims that the celebration of Diwali can be traced to A.D. 50-100 and that it comes from an autumnal festival for the dead (making it thematically related to the Western Halloween). learn more here- http://
