The Hindu Festival of Light takes place soon and it’s time to start preparing your fireworks display. Diwali and fireworks go hand in hand and we have a range of lovely fireworks to brighten your celebrations.
What is Diwali and When Does It Take Place in 2018?
Diwali is a Hindu festival that’s celebrated everywhere with large populations of Hindus. According to the folklore, Prince Rama and his wife Princess Sita were banished from their kingdom by Rama’s stepmother. They lived in a forest until one day they were able to return. To mark their return, everyone lit up lamps to guide them – which is why candles and fireworks remain a big part of the celebrations to this day!
In 2018, Diwali takes place on November 7, right after Bonfire Night. To mark the occasion, people organise street parties, eat tasty treats and, of course, light up fireworks!
