This festival is celebrated on the darkest night of Kartik month. This month is having its own importance and significance and many auspicious festivals come in the month of Kartik month.
Diwali is the festival of light and this is a five-day festival. This festival starts with Dhanteras and ends with the Bhai dooj.
This Diwali festival symbolizes the victory of good over evil. During these five days festivals, people clean their homes, workspaces and lights up their surroundings with colorful Diwali lamps and lanterns, diyas, and rangolis. Making beautiful and intricate Rangoli at the entrance of the house is our tradition. Usually, people make rangolis to impress Goddess Lakshmi and people believe that goddess Lakshmi is the Goddess of wealth and prosperity. They also believe that on the night of Diwali, Goddess Lakshmi and Lord Ganesha visit every person’s home and showers prosperity, good health, and Longlines.
During these five auspicious days of Diwali, people exchange Diwali gifts with each other. While giving Diwali gifts to each other, they will bring positivity, blissfulness to someone’s life. But sometimes there are a few gifts that are not considered as good Diwali gifts. If you want to wish someone with the auspicious Diwali gift then you need to buy the right gift which will bring happiness and harmony to their life. So here is a list of inauspicious Diwali gifts which you need to avoid buying.
- Idols of Lakshmi-Ganesh Ji: In India, people believed that Lord Ganesha & Goddess Lakshmi bestow good fortune, knowledge, and prosperity in your life. On Diwali, everyone worships them with an open heart. The Goddess Lakshmi & Lord Ganesha wish them wealth and peace. Also, people bring the Lord Ganesha & Goddess Lakshmi idols at home. But you need to avoid giving idols’ photos or murti to someone else, not likely to a family member and relative. It means that you are redirecting the God & Goddess away from your home.
- Anything that is Metal: Many people buy Gold, Silver, and copper ornaments and things of this material and it is favorable for oneself. But you need to avoid giving these five metals as Diwali gifts: Silver, Gold, Copper, Bronze, and Brass.
