Diwali, which marks the biggest Indian festival is celebrated by Hindus, Sikhs, and Jains all over India and the world. This festival is almost equivalent to Christmas in its importance to the celebrants. The date of Diwali is decided by the lunar calendar, in much the same way as the date for Easter is decided.
