Wishing a very happy Diwali to everyone celebrating here in Cambridge, and across Britain and around the world.
Diwali is the 5 day Festival Of Lights, celebrated by millions of Hindus, Sikhs and Jains across the world.
This year Diwali takes place over the 5 days from November 2nd to the 6th, with the main day being today, the 4th November 2021.
The word Diwali comes from the Sanskrit word deepavali, meaning 'rows of lighted lamps'.
Houses, shops and public places are decorated with small oil lamps called divas. People also enjoy fireworks and sweets too.
