The belief for celebrating Diwali: Symbolically Diwali is considered as celebration of 1. Return of Rama to Ayodhya after killing the Demon king Ravana 2. Killing of Naraka…sura by Krishna 3. Defeat of Indra by Krishna, who lifted mountain Govardhan to protect villages in Vrindavan from flooding caused by rains started by Indra. All these are symbolic. It is interesting to know that Diwali is a festival in Religions that are supposed to have evolved from Hinduism like Jainism, Sikhism and Buddhism. The actual reason for celebrating Diwali: Diwali is the day we come out of our dreams, illusions, and compulsions and try to know our real worth. Indra, Ravana and Narakasura are symbolic of these. Since, excluding Brahman, Vishnu is the only Hindu god who enables us to know our real worth, the festival is based around Vishnu and Lakshmi. Strictly speaking, it is not a festival to celebrate. It is just the day we audit our previous year. However, every one gives gifts and sweets to create an illusion that the previous year was very successful, irrespective of the previous years results. Thus, Hindus distribute gifts and sweets to celebrate mythological victory of good over evil. How ever, the actual reason why Hindus distribute gifts and sweets is to indicate that the previous year was very successful.
Though there could have been more, the Scripture notes these three: Gold was a gift for royalty-in this case the chosen King of the Jews and ultimately the "King of Kings and …Lord of Lords" who will rule over the entire earth (Revelation:19:16). Frankincense was an incense intimately connected with the priesthood and temple sacrifices, foreshadowing the fact that Jesus Christ would serve as our High Priest and give Himself as the perfect sacrifice to pay the penalty for the sins of all mankind (Hebrews:4:14-15; 9:11-14; 1 Peter:1:18-19). Myrrh had a much more sobering symbolism. When a person died, this perfuming agent was wrapped with the body to help cover up the stench of death. Jesus' own body would be wrapped in linen with myrrh and aloes (John:19:39-40).
Some families exchange presents, and some do not. Gift giving is most common among American and Canadian Jews, but it's a custom that only started a few decades ago due to inf…luence from Christmas. If gifts are exchanged, they are usually given each night during the 8 nights of the holiday. There is no rule about how many presents are given each night, but it is often 1 per night. The only traditional gift during Hanukkah is the gelt (coins) given to children.
First you must recognise the gift you have been given. If you have an aptitude for music then only use that gift so that it uplifts people. Whatever the gift you have be…en given it is to help your fellow man, and not to be hidden away under a "Bushel". Does not the Lord say "Pray always".
Lakshmi the goddess of wealth
If you mean at Jesus' birth then the three gifts were Gold, Frankincense, and Myrrh. On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and …worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, and of incense, and of myrrh. Matthew 2:11 Jesus was around two years old when he received the gifts. Hope I helped WWJD
Diwali is equivalent to Christmas in the Hindu tradition. It is the most awaited festival in the whole year. On this day houses are lighted with earth lamps. Sweets are distri…buted, firecrackers are busted. It is a wonderful sight when the sky is lit with colourful crackers.

Diwali is, basically, a festival of lights and signifies the victory of good over evil. Diwali is a five day celebration. It starts with Dhanwantari Triodasi also called …Dhan Teras, followed by Narak Chaturdasi, which is the eve of Diwali. The third day of Diwali is the actual Diwali, when worship of Goddess Lakshmi is performed. On the fourth day of Diwali, Goverdhan Pooja is performed. The fifth day of the Diwali is called Bhratri Dooj and is a day dedicated to sisters.
sweet meats and vegetables like ladoo.
Well, that all depends. First of all, the person who is getting the gift should be considered more than anything else - what is appropriate for one person may not be for anoth…er. Wedding anniversaries usually call for dates, nights out, jewelry, vacations.
