Diwali is one of the most auspicious ancient religious festival that is celebrated both in India as well as among the Indian diaspora residing elsewhere across the globe. It is the festival of lights that is celebrated in autumn every year. According to the Gregorian calendar, Diwali falls somewhere between mid-October and mid-November. According to the Hindu mythology, Diwali signifies the homecoming of Lord Rama to Ayodhya along with his wife Sita and brother Laxman from Lanka. According to Jain mythology, Diwali marks the attaining of Nirvana by the last Tirthankara Mahavira. The Sikhs on the other hand, mark Diwali as the day when Guru Hargobind freed himself along with some Hindu kings from the Fort of Gwalior.

In short, whatever the reasons may be, Diwali stands for joy and celebrations for everyone. In order to usher in the festivities of Diwali, Indians tend to decorate their homes with various decoratives, ornamental pieces and fancy items, the most important among them being wall hangings and door hangings.

According to the popular beliefs, the door hangings were hung by the citizens of Ayodhya to welcome their beloved prince Lord Rama.

Another popular notion is that Goddess Lakshmi, the Goddess of wealth and prosperity roams the Earth on Diwali night. The door hangings are meant for welcoming Goddess Lakshmi on the auspicious occasion of Diwali. The night of Diwali also coincides with
the darkest, new moon night of the Hindu Lunisolar month Kartika. It is a general notion that evil spirits roam the surface of the Earth, a day prior to Diwali. That is why the door hangings are hung outside the doors to ward off evil spirits.
