We are celebrating Diwali in India. It's a festival of lights, gifts, sweets and happiness. Some people say it's Indian Halloween :) According to the myth the holy glow of the lamps keep the demons away!
All the houses will be decorated with colorful lamps and candles at night. People will do puja while kids will play with fire works. Everyone will get gifts from the guests and one of the most favorite things about diwali is food!
People will visit friends and relatives places with dry fruits, boxes of sweets and also homemade desserts.

> Disable flash as it might not add to the overall scene....
