It’s the festival of lights, colours and prosperity - Deepavali is finally here! One of the most popular and auspicious festivals for Hindus, Sikhs and Jains across the globe, Diwali or Deepavali isn’t just a time for celebrations and sweets, but moreover a time of togetherness and hope - to usher in the new year with prosperity and positivity for all our friends and family.
Celebrated over a period of five days, Deepavali or Diwali celebrates the defeat of good over evil, lighting the path to fortune, knowledge, and righteousness with rows of brightly lit lamps or diyas, gold and ornaments, and beautiful flowers. Families come together and clean their houses, buy gold and utensils to usher in prosperity, brighten up their houses with new linen, rangolis and decor, and finally, deck themselves up in new clothes and jewellery. On the eve of the main celebration, families and friends visit one another’s homes with sweets and gifts, and burst firecrackers together to wish each other a prosperous start to their coming year - it’s a festivity of sharing good fortune and attracting more for your family and all your loved ones.
Over the years, Diwali has changed, with people becoming more aware of their impact on the world - people donate their home goods and old clothes to those less fortunate, and have also learnt to swap out the tradition of bursting firecrackers for more environmentally conscious traditions in order to celebrate in a more earth-friendly way.
So, with these evolving traditions, what would be the best way to light up your friends’ and families’ lives without the use of firecrackers? Well, we at Flower Chimp are big believers in the fact that flowers simply say it best - and what better way to illuminate someone’s Diwali than a beautiful bunch of brightly coloured blooms?
Flowers have always held an integral role in Hinduism, being a pivotal part of every puja, festivity and home - flowers signify purity, charm, innocence and beauty, and have, for centuries been used as the main offering to Hindu deities during prayers. Moreover, flowers are as colourful as gifts get - Diwali, being the festival of lights is known for its bright and vivid colours of lamps, rangolis, lights and clothes - flowers themselves, play a major role in not only decorating the houses of those celebrating but also the people as well. Hindu women traditionally deck their hair with beautiful and fragrant flowers to spruce up the festivities and add a fresh and luxurious aroma to the air.
Blooms simply are the most meaningful gift when it comes to Deepavali!
