Diwali 2021 Greetings

Diwali is considered to be India's biggest national holiday and is celebrated with gusto every year. Considering the joyous nature of the holiday, greetings are often very flowery and full, but you might wish someone a happy Diwali with a simple “Happy Diwali!” Other short and sweet greetings include: "Sending love and light this Diwali!" or "Wishing you a bright and happy Diwali!"

A traditional Diwali greeting is “Shubh Deepavali!” or “Diwali ki shubhkamnayein!” which both mean ‘Happy Diwali!’ in Hindi.
