Deepavali, or the Festival of Lights is the celebration of good over evil, and light overcoming darkness. Hindus light oil lamps on this day to mark the victory of Lord Krishna over the tyrannical King Narakasura by lighting oil lamps.
*This date is subject to change. Tentatively, Deepavali will fall on 10 November 2015. As with previous years, the Deepavali date on 10 November 2015 may be subject to change and will need to be reconfirmed when the Hindu Almanac is available in the first half of 2015.
