What day was Diwali in 1994?

Answer

The 1994 Hindu celebration of Diwali, also known as "Deepavali," fell on Thursday, November 3. The annual "festival of lights" is based on the Hindu Lunar Calendar, a Lunisolar calendar based on the positions of the moon and the sun.

The exact day of Diwali varies, but it always falls between October 13th and November 14th. The festival signifies the victory of light over darkness, good over evil, knowledge over ignorance and hope over despair. The five-day celebration begins two days prior to the actual date, on Dhanteras, a day celebrated with the purchase of precious metals to symbolize prosperity. The celebration ends with Bhai Duj, which is marked by an exchange of gifts.
