The Diwali Fireworks Portfolio template enables educators to share their Diwali celebrations that take place within their setting. This template then can be added to the child's portfolio.
From 18-19th October 2017 we celebrate Diwali. Diwali is a celebration of light in India and it is celebrated by Hindus, Jains, and Sikhs and Newar Buddhists to mark different historical events and stories. One of the popular traditional event relates to the legend of Prince Rama and his wife Princess Sita.
According to folklore, the pair were banished from their kingdom for 14 years by Rama’s stepmother.
A king, called Ravana, kidnapped princess Sita, after a long search Rama found Sita and killed Ravana. The couple travelled back to their homeland and everyone lit up oil lamps to guide them along the way and welcome them home.
Fireworks are set off to celebrate the legend and signify the return of the Prince and Princess. Diwali symbolise the victory of light over darkness, knowledge over ignorance, good over evil, hope over despair.
