We are almost heading towards mid 2013 which means we are getting closer to one of the biggest festival of India, Diwali. It is for those who want to know when in Diwali in 2013. This year Diwali falls on November 3, which is Sunday. So now as you know when is Diwali in 2013, you can concentrate on sending Diwali gifts to India.

Diwali or Deep-avali is also fondly called “the festival of lights" where rows of earthen lamps are ignited. This lighting up of lamps has a symbolic interpretation. It is considered that this practice is performed to keep the evil spirit away. It symbolizes the good over evil. Diwali is one of the most celebrated festivals in northern as well as southern India. While north-India call it Diwali, in South it is known as Deepavali or rows of diyas (earthen lamps). Though there is a notion that Diwali is a prominent Hindu festival, but it is equally celebrated by Jain and Sikh communities also. According to the eastern Lunar calendar, Diwali falls in the month of Ashvin, the date being the new moon day of Ashvin month. This Ashvina Amavasya is highly regarded as an auspicious date for which the practice of starting new businesses can be observed on this date. Now, let us come to the contemporary trend of sending Diwali gifts to India online and how it can be a fantastic idea.
