During Diwali, people light up their homes with beautiful oil lamps and decorate them with colorful rangoli designs made from colorful powders or flowers. It's like turning your house into a magical wonderland of lights and colors!

Now, here comes the interesting part: Diwali is also about celebrating the victory of good over evil and light over darkness. Lord Ram and his friends defeated a really mean and powerful demon king Ravan. When they came back home after their big win, the people were so happy that they lit up the whole city with lamps to show their joy.

And that's why, every year, during Diwali, we light lamps and burst fireworks to remind ourselves that even in the darkest times, goodness and happiness will always win. 

Plus, Diwali is a time to be with family and friends, share yummy sweets and treats, and exchange gifts. It's like a giant family reunion with lots of delicious food, laughter, and happiness all around.

So, in simple words, Diwali is a festival where we celebrate light, goodness, and togetherness, just like a big, bright, and joyful party that brings smiles to everyone's faces!
