Deepawali or more commonly known as Diwali is perhaps the most eagerly festival in the Indo-Fijian community.

Preparations for the festivities actually start weeks before the actual event and women start preparing sweets and new clothes are bought for every member of the household. On the actual day of the event sweets are distributed to friends and families.

For most kids and even adults to playing with fireworks is the best part of Diwali. Shops start selling all kinds of fireworks, which is a popular attraction. Diwali marks the beginning of the new Hindu year.

Even though this festival sounds like fun and games it carries an important message Forgive wrongdoers and start the New Year afresh.
