Of course, Deepavali being the Festival of Lights, you can’t miss having lanterns everywhere to celebrate the triumph over evil!!! These colourful kandils that are paper lanters are an important part of the celebration.
Many candles are also lighted up in Hindu households. If the shops near you don’t sell these lanterns, light up a candle instead! They can be used for Halloween in Jack O’Lanterns a few days later on the 31 October 2011 ;).
Have loads of fun,
