2021 Diwali Celebration: What Is Diwali?

You may have been mesmerized by Diwali from afar. It’s a yearly festival that signifies light conquering darkness and good triumphing over the forces of evil. If you are unsure of how to celebrate Diwali or take part in the festivities, this starter guide is for you. Diwali generally happens sometime between November and October and lasts up to 5 days. The very word means rows of lamps or lights. And that is just what you can expect in homes and public places where it is being celebrated. If you’re planning a 2021 Diwali celebration, lights, sparklers, and fireworks should be ordered.

The History of Diwali

Diwali is believed to signify and celebrate when the deities Sita and Rama came back from an exile of 14 years to Ayodhya. It celebrates the triumph of good over evil as the goddess Durga vanquished the demon called Mahisha. Diwali is also celebrated in Sikhism as Sikhs mark the day Hargobind Singh (the 6th Guru) being released from prison in 1619. Diwali is also important for realizing and cultivating a sense of perpetual and lasting peace in oneself. This is why the event can be celebrated by anyone. The 2021 Diwali is November 4th. Make sure to order your 2021 Diwali sparklers and fireworks in advance.

Fun Traditions of Diwali

Cleanliness Is Next To Godliness

There are so many wonderful traditions that one can partake in if you are celebrating Diwali (either alone or as part of a community). Cleanliness of oneself and one’s house is probably the first. And not just cleaning the house properly, but also removing items that no longer serve you. Doing a deep clean. And decorating your home and its main rooms, as well as your budget, allows. The Diwali celebration is a great time to do some serious cleaning both personally and in your home.


Both men and women are encouraged to bathe thoroughly and wear their best traditional garb, complete with bangles and other jewelry for women, not to mention a full face of makeup! Both the inside and the outside of the house have to be set in hundreds of little lamps or ‘diyas’. These are small oil-burning lamps. Fireworks also follow in quick succession. And there are personal or group prayer sessions as well. Family members and friends exchange thoughtful gifts (although this is not obligatory) and the best part is the grand feast that takes place in every house. 

Feed The Masses

Each home ensures a great feast, enough for dozens of people during the Diwali celebration. Staying within budget, they include all-traditional dishes. Children participate and help in the food prep. Rangoli is also a popular and much-loved tradition in Diwali. It consists of using rice or sand particles to make colorful designs on the floor, on stairs, or in other open spaces. People may have their own symbols, motifs, and designs that they prefer so their Rangoli will be according to that. Expect to see the streets and pathways similarly decorated!

Satisfy The Sweet Tooth

Sweets are super important for Diwali and in South Asian cuisine in general. Barfi, laddoo, and Chakli are favorites. And the new generation of mothers search for homemade sweet recipes on Youtube! They are hundreds of traditional sweets to choose from.

Celebrate Your Birthday In Style – 2021 Birthday Ideas

Who wants to have the same old birthday celebration, year, after year, after year? Perhaps not many, but that’s what most people find themselves doing throughout their whole lifetime. Why not be rebellious and do something different? Instead of the typical cake and candles, why not opt for something more extravagant and fun? How about adding Sparklers into the mix? Here are some fantastic 2021 Birthday Ideas that’ll really turn your party into an unforgettable event.


Sparklers are to candles what carnivals are to playgrounds: much, much cooler and so much more fun! The sparks and fire flying through the air create the same sense of excitement that is felt on the fourth of July when the fireworks go off. It’s magical. There is something about fire and sparks that bring out the children in even the oldest of persons, so don’t hesitate to set some Sparklers off on old Aunt Jane’s 90th birthday! You just might see a childlike glimmer light up in her eyes!

Young At Heart

No matter how old we grow, there is always a sense of fun, a sense of humor, that never really goes away. We all want to be surprised on our birthdays, made to feel special, made to feel loved. It’s the one day of the year that is truly all ours if we will allow the spotlight to be on just us. Remember this when you are planning a birthday for someone, and be as unique in your planning as you can for your precious loved one. Whether you are planning a birthday for a toddler or for someone turning 50, the sentiment should always stay the same: celebrate life!

The Best 2021 Birthday Ideas


No matter where you are holding the celebration, sparklers can be used to decorate. You can add them to the top of the cake. Used as party favors, or given out to the guests to light when the birthday boy or girl comes into the room! Not only do they come in a simple stick form, they now are made in the shape of a heart. So, pick which style is right for you and the party you are throwing. They also come in number-shaped sparklers. So you can have twice the amount of sparkles and fun just by adding them to the top of the cake! Choose the number of sparklers you want based on the type of party you are throwing. We suggest for a simple and quiet birthday, choose just number-shaped sparklers to adorn the cake. For a grand and exciting party, order a large number of sparklers and have the guests double up on how many they hold. The choice is yours, but either way, with just a few or a whole lot, adding Sparklers will really bring the party to life!

A Special Touch

Sparklers add a special something that you just can’t get anywhere else. Think of them whenever you are celebrating any special occasion. Whether it is a birthday, wedding, anniversary, birth, graduation, or any of the hundreds of other special occasions that we might celebrate during our lifetime. Or perhaps, you are one of those special people who don’t need an excuse to celebrate life. Every day is a celebration to you. In that case, light em’ up, just because.
