How Do Hindus Prepare for Diwali?

Answer

Diwali is the festival of lights. Hindus begin preparing for it by extensive house cleaning to drive out all the dirt accumulated during the year. They also prepare lamps. The lamps are lit and are kept burning all night long in the house to drive away evil spirits. Fire crackers are set off to drive away evil spirits. Hindus wear new clothes and give sweet desserts to each member of the family.
