Some hindus believe that Lakshmi walks the earth to find peoples houses were she will be welcmed into, alot of people open dorrs and windows to invite it in.


The Festival of Diwali started when people belive that there were 2 people called Rama and Sita and Sita the wife got taken by a 10 headed demon and took here to his island with all his little demons that are deers. Rama went to the God of the Monkeys and asked if he and all his monkeys could help, they couldnt find a way across to there island until the monkeys made a bridge to cross and they went and killled the demons. All the lights from the festival came from when people plased them down so the to could come back and be cround King and Queen.
