What is Diwali?
Diwali is known as the festival of lights and is one of the major festivals celebrated by Hindus, Jains, and Sikhs. The festival usually lasts about five days and is celebrated during the Hindu lunisolar month of Kartika.
Every faith has its own reasons to celebrate Diwali, but there is an overarching theme of celebrating good triumphing over evil, or light overcoming darkness. The popular Hindu legend that revolves around Diwali tells the story of Rama and Sita returning to their kingdom, Ayodhya, after 14 years of being expelled to defeat the evil king, Ravana.
However, in Sikh culture, Diwali falls in line with the date on which the sixth guru, Hargobind Singh, and 52 princes, were released from jail in 1619. Diwali is the most significant festivals for the Jains, marking the annual celebration of the liberation of their 24th Tirthankaras’ (spiritual leader) soul.
For many who celebrate Diwali in India, the festival also marks the end of the harvest season. During this time, the Hindus will take the opportunity to pay for Lakshmi, the goddess of riches and prosperity.
It is a magical time of the year full of positivity that creates an amazing atmosphere for anyone who is able to celebrate or just be around it.
So, why do people light fireworks to celebrate Diwali?
Fireworks are an essential part of the light festival. With there being less focus on effects and volume, the vibrancy and colour range are crucial to a good Diwali display.
For Diwali, the lighting of fireworks is interpreted as a way to ward off all evil spirits as well as a way of adding to the festive mood. In addition to these reasons, the ritual may also be linked to the tradition of paying respect to ancestors.
In fact, fireworks are deeply embedded in Indian culture. They feature as a prominent theme of joy and celebration in many paintings from the 16th and 17th centuries.
So that is why you will typically be able to see the sky lit with fireworks on the first night of Diwali. Across the United Kingdom, many cities will celebrate the beginning of this festival with an opening ceremony, which closes with a spectacular display.
The fireworks will signify the victory of light over darkness by warding off all evil spirits as well as adding to the festive mood. As this will be the focus of the festival, the fireworks that are mainly used will be silent ones such as sparklers, lanterns and fountains which omit the most beautiful colourful light effects.
How to safely celebrate Diwali with a bang
We understand that you want to have fun and enjoy yourself but you need to do so safely and responsibly. Therefore we have put together some of our top tips on how to celebrate Diwali as safely as possible:
- You should always keep your fireworks in a closed, fireproof box and only take them out one at a time, closing the box immediately after removal
- You should never keep fireworks in your pockets
- You should never give fireworks to children
- Always carefully read and comply with the safety instructions on each and every firework
- Only one person should be in charge of the fireworks
- Always light fireworks at an arm’s length and stand well back after lighting them
- Never return to a lit firework that has failed to fire
- You should always hold sparklers in a gloved hand one at a time. When finished, put the sparklers' hot end down into a bucket of water
- Make sure that there is a safe distance between the fireworks and those watching as your fireworks display should always include a safe watch distance
- Never throw fireworks
Is there a specific way I should store fireworks?
There are a few things to consider on how to store away fireworks that you have purchased to make sure that you are being as safe as possible.
To make sure that nothing happens to the fireworks you should ensure that they are stored well away from any flammable materials and sources of heat such as hot water boilers or radiators. Make sure that your storage area is one hundred percent dry and any fireworks which have become damp are not used as you should never attempt to dry a firework or use them.
You need to also consider the temperature at which you store fireworks, ensuring that they are kept at a consistent temperature. Changing temperatures can cause humidity, which can then make your fireworks damp, so you will need to find a moisture trap sold by local DIY stores that is useful in extracting moisture from the environment.
