Diwali Lights
Diwali is celebrated each year with all the more buoyancy and cheerfulness than the last year. Every New Year of Diwali gets to see all the more firecrackers, sweets, Diwali gifts and illumination of Diwali lights. The festival of lights has been called so for the simple reason of the usage of hundreds and thousands of the Diwali lights on the Deepavali eve, which convert the moonless dark night of amavasya into a lighted night with hundreds of lights being put up at every corner.People believe that if their houses would be properly lit with many Diwali lights on the eve of diwali puja then Goddess Lakshmi would definitely pay a visit to their home and will fill their home with wealth and prosperity.
Well this is not the only reason for the lighting up of so many Diwali lights. Another popular legend associated with the Diwali lights is of the celebrations, which took place in ayodhya in order to commemorate the coming back of Lord Ram along with his wife Sita, and younger brother Lakshman. The people of Ayodhya were so happy on the comeback of Lord Ram that they lit up many lights in order to show off their happiness. Since then the Diwali lights came to be used for celebrating Diwali.
