Diwali involves lighting little lamps, or divas. These divas are kept are placed at doorways and opening and kept burning through the night, the home is also kept in good order and cleaned during Diwali as its an auspicious and religious time, both are done so to make the goddess Lakshmi feel welcome. Fireworks are burst because it is believed that it keeps away evil spirits. It is also the celebration of the return of the avatar Rama and Sita where they were sent away to exile for 14 years.
