Sky Lanterns on Diwali

Diwali is marked by fun and lights! Celebrate the joys of glowing sky lanterns with your friends, family and loved ones and wish them a wonderful diwali.

Acclaimed as the Festival of Lights, Diwali is associated with lights, sweets, and liveliness; especially lights. As, it is celebrated on the new-moon (Amavasya) night, lights have a significant role to play in this festival. This is why, when we hear the name Diwali, the first impression that flashes through our minds is of  sprinkling various sorts of bright colored lights in the night sky. Although the tradition of lightning on Diwali is not very old, still they have succeeded in becoming such a vital part of this festival that we can’t even imagine a wonderful Diwali without them.

The majestic appeal of the Diwali festival is such that, it drifts everyone in a festive and relaxed mood even before its arrival. Temples and markets are decorated and lighted a few days before Diwali, as a sign of paying homage to and welcoming this great Hindu festival. Besides the contemporary led-lights, candles, fireworks, and conventional earthen-lamps (diyas) now people also use sky lanterns for embellishing their homes. Prayers are offered to goddess Laxmi and lord Ganesha on Diwali night.

Diwali is really a fabulous festival and sky lanterns can play a significant role in increasing its charm among all age-groups. Whether they are kids, youngsters, or older people, everybody enjoy the sky lanterns. As, there are some environmental issues associated with the use of firecrackers or fireworks on the Diwali festival, a better way to enjoy the lighted sky on Diwali is by flying Skylanterns. Special Diwali packs are available at Sky Lantern India.
