Livingston “Lights Up” to Celebrate Diwali

Livingston was lit up with oil lamps, fireworks, traditional food and sweets, decorated homes and socially distanced celebrations this past weekend in observance of Diwali, the Indian festival of lights. Men, women and children donned traditional fancy Indian attire, and safe individual fireworks were set off in driveways and private roads.

“Diwali, also known as the festival of lights, is the most popular holiday in India,” explains Fal Pandya, who participated in the celebrations. “Diwali means rows of oil lamps made with clay. People from all four indigenous religions of India Hindus, Sikhs, JaMs and Buddhists — came together this past weekend to celebrate Diwali, a spiritual triumph of good over evil, light over darkness, and knowledge over ignorance.”
