Diwali is a religious festival that originated in India. It is a 5-day celebration marking the start of the Hindu New Year. Enjoy our free Diwali coloring pages while learning about the most important holiday in India.
This year it is celebrated on October 24th, 2022, however, it changes every year based on the Hindu lunar calendar. Typically it happens sometime between the end of October to the end of November.
As we always like to learn about fun holidays in our homeschool (any excuse to pause the core curriculum!) I have shared with you some fun Diwali activities we will be doing.
Prior to moving to America over 3 years ago, we went to a number of Diwali events in Leicester, UK, where we are from. Leicester holds the largest Diwali celebrations outside of India, and it was full of laughter, dancing, and lights, in fact, we looked forward to it every year.
