Diwali 2018 Date

7 November 2018, Wednesday..

Diwali is a day when there is no moon in the sky. It is also called “Amavasya".

Amavasya is considered to be an inauspicious night because of the darkness that prevails all over in the absence of the moon.

Whereas, the Amavasya of Kartika is highly auspicious because of several reasons including return of Lord Ram to Ayodhya after 14 years of banishment and people eradicate the darkness by lighting the lamps and candles symbolic of enlightenment and happiness and celebration.
