80 Diwali Greetings and Wishes to Bring Light to Your Loved Ones

Diwali, also known as the Festival of Lights or Deepavali, is celebrated in homes and communities in India and around the world by Hindus, Jains, Sikhs, Buddhists, Sindhis, and others who just enjoy the spirit of the honored tradition. It takes place in the Hindu month of Kartik, which tends to fall around October and November. This year, the biggest Diwali day falls on November 12, but it's celebrated for five days. Those who embrace the holiday fill their homes with sweets, the warm glow of diyas (a small lamp or candle), and share happy Diwali greetings with loved ones.

Since Diwali symbolizes the victory of light over darkness and good over evil, this also marks a time for people to renew and refresh, give Diwali gifts to family and friends, and spread positivity through Diwali captions and wishes. Similar to New Year’s day, people celebrate the festival by bringing color into their homes — decorating with intricate patterns called rangoli, made from materials like colored powder, rice flour, and flower petals. In addition to adorning their homes, people will also give themselves a fresh start by cleaning, holding get-togethers, and exchanging well wishes. To convey blessings, good intentions, and love, here are 80 ideas for what to say during Diwali to those who celebrate.
