This year in New Zealand, Diwali falls on October 24th this year, the festivities will begin around the 21st of October. Diwali Festivals are very popular across New Zealand. Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch hold two day-long festivals attended by people from all communities and religions.
The Auckland Diwali Festival celebrations will take place on Saturday and Sunday the 8th/9th of October.
The overarching meaning of Diwali is to celebrate the triumph of lightness over darkness and, during this time of upheaval, the spirit of that message can be something to celebrate, but the celebrations about more than that. It's a time to get friends and family from across the board together to spend a celebratory evening together.
When I was 14, I was lucky enough to spend celebrate Diwali with an Indian family in Singapore. I was able to observe their way of celebrating, a big feast of everyone together and lots of whisky for the men. Afterwards the younglings played games, while the women did henna and the men played poker.
