DIWALI, IS THE INDIAN FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS

The name "Diwali" or "Divali" is a contraction of "Deepavali" (Sanskrit: दीपावली Dīpāvalī), which translates into "row of lamps".[4] Diwali involves the lighting of small clay lamps (dīpa in Sanskrit: दीप) filled with oil to signify the triumph of good over evil.[5] These lamps are kept on during the night and one's house is cleaned, both done in order to make the goddess Lakshmi feel welcome.[6] Firecrackers are burst because it is believed that it drives away evil spirits.[7][8][9] During Diwali, all the celebrants wear new clothes and share sweets and snacks with family members and friends.

Yes, anyone with at least half a brain says that it is fake, because it is far too obviously a fake. There are places illuminated there where nobody lives. How the heck is that supposed to happen?
