Celebrate Diwali with the Cumming library. Join us for a short program and performance, the making of traditional Hindu crafts, and enjoy a tasting of authentic holiday food samples to take home.
Diwali is a five-day Hindu festival celebrated between mid-October and mid-November. The festival is also known as the "Festival of Lights." The celebration is symbolized differently to different people throughout the culture. Some of the meanings are "light over darkness", "good over evil", and "knowledge over ignorance." The holiday is celebrated by Hindus, Sikhs, and Jains worldwide, including in the United States of America. We welcome all to join us for an afternoon of learning and crafting.
