A De-’light’-ful Celebration for Diwali 2023

Diwali (The festival of light) is an occasion  celebrated by the Hindu, Jain and Sikh faiths near the end of each year. This occasion holds a great deal of significance for the people of these faiths. Due to its alignment with the new moon, the occasion is celebrated on different days each year and usually between October and November. This year, the Diwali celebration begins on the 12th of November 2023. The NetFlorist Bunch has put together a range of ‘bright’ Diwali gift ideas to ‘lighten up’ this enormous celebration.

The Significance of Diwali

Diwali, originating from the Sanskrit term ‘Deepavali,’ which translates to rows of illuminated lamps, is more than a festival. It’s a vibrant tapestry of cultural significance and symbolism. Celebrated widely, Diwali is a testament to the enduring triumph of good over evil and light over darkness.

Families unite, adorning homes with vibrant rangolis and Diyas. The sweet symphony of prayers resonates, seeking blessings from Goddess Lakshmi. Bursting fireworks illuminate the night sky, echoing celebrations. Exquisite feasts and exchanged gifts create a tapestry of love and happiness, weaving cherished memories.

Diwali in South Africa marks a time for clearing out the old in order to make room for the new. Aligned with the new moon, Diwali evenings are notably darker, adorned with the glow of countless lamps and candles. The festival fosters connections as families gather, sharing moments of laughter and exchanging de-‘light’-ful Diwali treats.

It is no surprise that flowers play a major role in brightening the captivating celebrations with flowers. Those who observe the occasion often choose to make rangolis from different flower types. Rangolis are essentially abstract flower designs, which often include floral arrangements with carnations, roses and orchids of various colours.
