Diwali has ancient roots that trace back over 2,500 years. It is celebrated to mark various historical events, including Lord Rama's return to Ayodhya after defeating Ravana, the demon king, and Lord Krishna's victory over the demon Narakasura. Traditional Diwali celebrations involved lighting oil lamps or diyas, decorating homes with rangoli (colorful patterns), exchanging gifts and sweets, and visiting temples. The focus was on spiritual and familial bonds.
