National holiday

Deepavali (which translates to “row of lamps”) is one of the most important Hindu festivals. Also known as Diwali or the festival of lights. It is so big that in countries with high number of hindus is a public holiday, like here in Singapore.
It is no surprise to find Little India intensely decorated for this holiday. I hear the decorations have been going on for over a couple of weeks.
