As part of the celebration, many families will be lighting Diyas at home as Diwali is also known as the Festival of Light. Diyas, or clay lamps, are lit to celebrate the triumph of good over evil. Students listened to a storybook about Diwali and learned how to draw a Diya, and then they created beautiful pieces of artwork to help their classmates celebrate the joyful holiday.
