 According to Wikipedia:
Diwali also known as Deepavali and the "festival of lights", is an ancient Hindu festival celebrated in autumn every year.The festival spiritually signifies the victory of light over darkness, knowledge over ignorance, good over evil, and hope over despair.The festival preparations and rituals typically extend over a five day period, but the main festival night of Diwali coincides with the darkest, new moon night of the Hindu Lunisolar month Kartika. In the Gregorian calendar, Diwali night falls between mid-October and mid-November.

Before Diwali night, people clean, renovate and decorate their homes.On Diwali night, Hindus dress up in new clothes or their best outfit, light up diyas (lamps and candles) inside and outside their home, participate in family puja typically to Lakshmi – the goddess of wealth and prosperity. After puja (prayers), fireworks follow,then a family feast including mithai (sweets), and an exchange of gifts between family members and close friends. Diwali also marks a major shopping period in nations where it is celebrated.

SOME HEALTHY TIPS FOR DIWALI: 

1. STORE FIRE CRACKERS AT A SAFER PLACE AWAY FROM HEAT AND FLAME:

  The firecrackers should be placed away from heat and flame. In a closed box, somewhere cool and dry, out of reach of children and animals and away from all sources of heat, until the time they're needed. Locked away is best. Don't keep the box under the stairs or in a passageway. Some tragedies are due to improper placing of crackers. Proper care must be necessary.

2.  PETS AND DOEMSTIC ANIMALS GET FRIGHTENED BY CRACKERS:

Keep your pets and domestic animals away from crackers. Lock them inside and keep them away from heavy sound of crackers. Dont only think about your pets, but also stray animals. The stray animals are also get frightened and run away to a safer place. If possible, dont use crackers near stray dogs and animals. They are also living beings.

3. BE AWARE AND PREPARE FOR ANY MISHAPPENING THAT CAN OCCUR:

Before you start, make sure you'll be giving yourself enough room in a safe place to get to and from your box of fireworks while the display is going on. Have a full bucket of water handy for any emergency, and for putting used sparklers into. If you have the chance to get together with some other families, try to go to the home with the biggest open space and safest surroundings.Never try to re-ignite the fireworks that don't light in the first instance. Never give ANY firework item to small children. Never throw fireworks at another person. Never carry fireworks in your pocket. Never shoot fireworks from metal or glass containers. Never experiment, modify, or attempt to make your own fireworks.

  •  KEEP CHILDREN AWAY FROM FIREWORKS.
  • DONT GIVE HEAVY AND BIG CRACKERS TO CHILDREN.
  • WEAR 'SOOTY' CLOTHES THAT DOESNT CATCH FIRE EASILY.
  • DONT RELIGHT THE CRACKERS THATA RE ACTUALLY LIT AND TAKING SOME TIME TO EXPLODE.
  • ALWAYS USE GOOD QUALITY CRACKERS.
  • Always use a long candle/'phooljhari' for igniting fire crackers and keep elbow joint straight to increase the distance between the body and the crackers.
  • Keep two buckets of water handy. In the event of fire, extinguish flame by pouring water from the buckets. Every major fire is small when it starts.
  • In case of burns, pour large quantity of water on the burnt area.
  • In case of major burns, after extinguishing the fire, remove all smoldering clothes. Wrap the victim in a clean bedsheet.
