Softheon’s Diwali Night is celebrated annually during the month of October. Diwali, or Deepavali, a Sanskrit word meaning “rows of lighted lamps,” is a Hindu-originated festival is celebrated nationally by most Indians regardless of their faith. During the five-day celebration known as the “Festival of Lights” clay lamps known as Diya’s are lit to signify the victory of good over evil, according to the Hindu American Foundation.
