Sunday, Nov. 12, is Diwali, one of the most widely celebrated events worldwide and among the most important days for Hindus, Jains and Sikhs. Diwali, also known as the “festival of lights,” marks the triumph of light over dark, good over evil and the blessings of victory, freedom and enlightenment. 

Diwali is primarily celebrated in India and other parts of South Asia, with over one billion people participating worldwide. While various customs and traditions are prevalent in different cultures, most celebrations center around lighting candles and gathering families. 

All members of the Auburn Family are invited to learn more by getting involved with the Cross Cultural Center for Excellence and the Indian Student Organization.
