Deepavali, the festival of lights, is mostly celebrated by the Sri Lankan Tamils and considered as a public holiday in Sri Lanka. Deepavali falls during October or November on the Western solar calendar. Hindu temples will hold special services on this day and houses of the celebrants will be decorated with traditional glowing clay lamps. Taking a walk through a town or village with decorated lights and lamps would be a major attraction that visitors often enjoy during this period.
