  • Himachal celebrate old Diwali after a month of Diwali as they got the news of arrival of Ram and Sita to reach Ayodhya after a month.



  • Tamilians celeberate Diwali one day before the original date of Diwali because a demon named Narakasur was killed by Lord Krishna on that day so people have an oil bath in the morning burn crackers and eat amazing dishes and sweets in the morning itself.
