Happy Diwali 2020: Deepavali quotes, photos, gifs to wish your loved ones

Diwali 2020 List of Traditional Snacks With Recipes To Celebrate Deepavali Festival Indian holy city lights record number of oil lamps

The north Indian city of Ayodhya kept its Guinness World Record for a second year on Friday by lighting 584,572 oil lamps and keeping them burning for at least 45 minutes as part of the celebration of Diwali, the Hindu festival of lights.

Neasden Temple, a place of worship for Hindus, is one of the biggest in the United Kingdom and is preparing for a virtual Diwali.

Diwali usually takes place sometime between October and November, with the date changing every year.

The Kitchener Hindu Temple and MaxTech Innovations in Waterloo delivered masks, sanitizer and a $5,000 cheque to St. Mary's General Hospital on Thursday, along with 600 vegetarian meals for staff.

It is true that we can not spot people beelining to purchase their share of fireworks this year, but a quick stroll down the market presents a different picture altogether.

"So, it's a new way of celebrating Diwali, and we will miss the family get together, exchange of candies". Play this to get in the mood for celebrations.

Mr Sharma said people who have booked slots will be told what area they can go to at the temple and will give their details for track and tracing.

He added: "Every Diwali we do a cultural, musical programme upstairs with 300 or 400 people singing Bollywood songs and dancing, and a free feast downstairs for all the devotees and attendees, which is open to everyone".

The Federation of Indian Associations (FIA) of the tri-state area of New York, New Jersey and CT, the leading umbrella diaspora organisation in the U.S., partnering with the Empire State Building, marked the festival of lights by illuminating the iconic Manhattan building in orange Friday. "Diwali is a triumph of light over darkness, goodness over evil, so this shall pass. Diwali is a great, great reminder for the fact that dark times are not going to last forever".

It is celebrated by Hindus, Sikhs and Jains.

Both communities are determined not to let the pandemic dim their light, and will celebrate the best they can with their household bubble.

Lakshmi Puja is the third day and sees families seek blessings from Lakshmi to ensure their prosperity and visit temples, and is the main day of the festival.

"I have three daughters, so I'll only be able to see one daughter, which is quite disappointing".

It's been a very hard time for those who have lost loved ones to COVID-19, like the family of 67-year-old Vipin Bhatt, from Leicester.
