In these difficult times, we could all use a little light and hope.
Diwali, the festival of lights, is an important celebration for Hindus, Sikhs and Jains.
The festival is all about the good overcoming darkness. It focusses on light, health, wealth, knowledge, peace, and prosperity. People celebrate by decorating their homes with candles or coloured lights.
This week is National Interfaith Week. In common with many religions around the world, Hinduism uses light as a symbol of hope, peace and joy.
We invite all of our community to join together in hope by sharing an image of light, wherever you are in the world.
Please tag your photos with #spreadalittlejoy so we can share them with everyone!
