Deepavali is a unique Hindu festival

Deepavali (or Diwali) is the largest Hindu festival, known as the festival of lights. It is a unique moment for the Indian community in the country and abroad due to its deep meaning and stunning beauty. It is a special occasion to spend some precious time with family and friends at a Deepavali party, enjoy a common meal, wear colourful clothes and appreciate each other’s company. It is the moment to light some traditional Deepavali candles and watch them sparkling beautifully at night.

As an important celebration, a Deepavali party also involves gifting the host family by the guests. It is worth knowing that Deepavali parties have their own etiquette, connected to Hindu culture. Gift etiquette in Singapore varies among its many ethnic and cultural groups. In order to understand each other better, it is important to take a closer look at Deepavali/ Deepavali gifting traditions.

What to be aware of at the Deepavali party?

In order to understand the rules and etiquette of a Deepavali party, it is important to take a closer look at the Deepavali traditions first. The history of the festival is long and complicated as it stretches back more than 2500 years. It is also deeply connected to the Hindu traditions. Its celebrations and legends connected to it vary in different regions of India. However, Deepavali is not that complicated as it looks like. You don’t have to learn its entire history to understand its meaning and symbolism. There are just some general facts you should definitely know.

Go for colourful clothing

First, as a festival of lights, Deepavali symbolizes the victory of light over darkness as well as knowledge over ignorance. For this reason, Deepavali is such a joyful celebration: it is a moment of love, understanding and hope. It is important as it also regards clothing. At a Deepavali party, one should abstain from dark clothes. It is recommended to wear something colourful, bright and shiny, something that symbolizes light and joy. Choose colours like red, yellow or green. You can also put on some jewellery and other accessories to adorn your outfit. Don’t worry, it won’t be too much for Deepavali!

Put your phone down

Don’t use your phone or other electronic devices during the Deepavali party as it might be considered rude. You come to the party to enjoy the company of your friends, not to be online. If you were on your phone in front of everyone, it might be considered rude. It is better to just excuse and leave to give a call if you really need your phone for a moment.

Bring some gifts with you

When you are invited to a party, you should bring some gift for the host. You should also give it to your host at the moment of greeting to show your personal appreciation for being invited. There are many things you can bring with you, yet it should not be wine: it might be considered not appropriate. Don’t worry, there are other things you could give as a present!

Deepavali gift ideas

  • Candles: what could be more appropriate for the festival of lights than candles? Bringing candles with you will be a nice way to show that you understand the Deepavali’s traditions.
  • Snacks: sweets (like chocolate or candies), nuts or dried fruits are traditional Deepavali’s snacks and a safe choice for a gift.
  • Deepavali gift basket: you can choose the safest way and go for a gift basket with traditional Deepavali’s snacks. It is an easier choice that will definitely satisfy your hosts.
