Diwali at Trafalgar Square
The Festival of Lights is perfectly placed in November, bringing us memories of the warm summer festival season and also getting us in the sparkly mood for Christmas. Trafalgar Square will be packed with traditional music, dancing, food stalls and more and no matter what you believe in it is just one big happy party.
Diwali honours the Lakshmi the goddess of prosperity and it is lucky to start a new business at this time. It is traditional to wear new clothes (a good excuse to go shopping!) and of course light lamps to welcome Lakshmi.
