Diwali, Festival of Lights
We are fast approaching the Diwali (or Deepavali) festival season, which will mean a public holiday in some Uniserve Group global locations during the next week.
Diwali is otherwise known as the festival of lights, and is celebrated every year by the Hindu religion with a holiday in India, Malaysia, Myanmar, Nepal and Singapore, amongst others.
The festival signifies the victory of light over dark, good over evil, knowledge over ignorance and hope over despair. Traditionally, houses, buildings, streets and temples are decorated with millions of lights during the celebration.
The date of the holiday varies considerably from region to region, which is demonstrated by the Indian dates below:
