Diwali or Deepavali? What’s in a name?

Deepavali is a Sanskrit portmanteau of dipa, which means lights, and vali, meaning numerous. It’s no wonder that a row of lit clay lamps called diya has become a symbol of this beloved five day festival that celebrates the victory of light over darkness. In many parts of India, particularly the south, the festival is still known by this name. But whether you greet anyone a happy Deepavali or Diwali, you’re sure to light up their day.
