– It is believed that on this day Lord Ram returned to Ayodhya after 14 years of exile with his wife Goddess Sita and his dear brother Lakshman, after defeating the Demon King Ravan.
– Lord Hanuman joyously announced their return and the people of Ayodhya rejoiced as they were pining for their king.
– The tradition of bursting fire works and lighting lamps was to celebrate this good news and welcome their return.
– Another Reason Diwali is celebrated is to celebrate the Birthday of Goddess Lakshmi (Goddess of Wealth and Prosperity). 
– This is also the day Lord Vishnu and Goddess Lakshmi met. On this auspicious day, Hindus pray to the elephant headed Lord Ganesha to remove all obstacles and to impart wisdom.
– Legend says that on this day, Lord Krishna defeated the cruel Demon Narakasura with his wife Goddesses Satyabhama and won back the heavens for the Gods.
