Diwali is a five-day celebration where clay lamps called diyas are lit to signify the victory of light over darkness, good over evil, and knowledge over ignorance. There are several stories that are celebrated with the festival in different parts of India. No matter which legend you prefer - Rama and Sita’s return from exile, the goddess Lakshmi’s bestowment of luck, or Krishna’s defeat of the demon Narkasur - the day is about hope, family, friends, and joy. Join us in learning about some of the Hindu deities celebrated on this day, and create your own art projects to take home.
