Diwali 2020: The festival of light, Diwali is around the corner. Diwali is celebrated with Diyas, rangoli’s, lights, and with a lot of enthusiasm and joy.

Lord Ram came back home after 14 years of Vanvaas and people welcomed him by lighting Diyas and lamps. However, this year Chhoti Diwali is falling on the same day as Badi Diwali i.e. on November 14. That means one less holiday this year. Also Read - Happy Chhath Puja 2020: Wishes, Messages, Quotes, Whatsapp Status To Share With Your Loved Ones
