Happy Deepavali (Diwali) 2019 Wishes Images, Quotes, Status, Wallpapers: Rejoice, because the annual festival of Deepavali is here, Literally meaning ‘a row of diyas‘ Deepavali is celebrated every year by almost the entire country. While in the northern states, people call it Diwali and celebrate the homecoming of Lord Rama — following the end of a 14-year exile — most southern states commemorate it to mark the death of demon Narakasura at the hands of Lord Krishna.
In Kerala, it is believed that the revered King Mahabali died on the day, which is why it is not celebrated.
On the day, people wake up early and take a warm oil bath before sunrise. Then, they wear new clothes, light candles, burst firecrackers and enjoy sweets with their loved ones. Though Deepavali is usually celebrated a day ahead of Diwali, this year, it falls on the same date — October 27.
