Diwali is a 'Festival of Lights'. Before Diwali, we clean our houses,
prepare various kinds of sweets and hang lanterns in our windows. During
Diwali we burn crackers, eat sweets and draw rangoli on our doorstep.
Diwali is the festival of Goddess Laxmi. We worship Goddess Laxmi on the
day called 'Laxmi Poojan' that comes in the period of Diwali. The period
of Diwali longs for 4-5 days. The last day of Diwali is called as
Bhaubij. On this day, brother gives a gift to his sister.
In short, Diwali is festival of excitement. According to me, this
festival should never end but anything that has started should meet its
end. But, this festival always ends happily. I like this festival very
