This is a wonderful child-friendly holiday for those in the many religions of India. It is very celebrated much like our current Christmas holiday in the U.S. with new clothes, wonderful holiday foods, visits with relatives for the holiday, and going to church (in this case temple). It also has the added pleasures of dancing and fireworks to celebrate the return of Rama to his hometown after many years; with the villagers placing clay pots with candles shining to light his way home on the moonless night.
