Diwali is associated with lights, sweets, and liveliness; especially lights and as, it is celebrated on the new moon (Amavasya) night, lights and fireworks have a significant role to play in this festival. Although the tradition of fireworks 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.
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. The Deepawali or Diwali festival also marks the beginning of the New Year according to the Hindu calendar, as the Ashwin month ends and the Kartik month begins on this day. Besides the contemporary led lights, candles, and fireworks, people also use the conventional earthen lamps (diyas) for embellishing their homes. Prayers are offered to goddess Laxmi and lord Ganesha on Diwali night.
Diwali is really a fabulous festival and fireworks play a significant role in increasing its charm among all age-groups. Whether they are kids, youngsters, or older people, everybody enjoy the fireworks like twinkling Anars, furious Rockets, vibrant Sparklers, cyclonic Ground Discs (phirki), and so. However, there are some environmental issues associated with the use of firecrackers or fireworks on the Diwali festival, still there will be no exaggeration in saying that fireworks are an inherent part of Diwali celebrations.
