    Diwali! in gujarat, after Diwali, for one week there is a Bandh (strike) like situation, As everybody goes on trips and holidays. its like a tradition here. I have once or twice stayed after Diwali in Ahmedabad, and i can tell you, its like a ghost town.

    too many of them, esp when delicacies are involved (which is with every holiday), if we go by our panchang we could have holidays every day of a year, so much for great culture we have

    the victory of light over darkness good over evil, there are regional differences though. some believe it is the return of the pandavs, or something to do with lakshmi, i read a bit into it.
