Diwali, also known as Deepavali (a "row of lamps"), is perhaps the most important and ancient of the Indian festivals.
It is celebrated throughout India as well as in Indian communities around the world. It is colloquially known as "The Festival of Lights" - the time when families light small oil lamps (known as diyas) and candles around the home and set off firecrackers and fireworks.
Well when you are dressed in kurta & pyjama why not go the whole hog and go off to the pub for a few lunch time pints
