One of my favorite parts of working for Benchmark Email is the worldwide focus that this company takes. We have employees and offices across the globe, and I get to learn things about different cultures all the time. When I was asked to write a blog about Diwali, it was explained as the festival of lights. As a Jewish person, I always knew Hanukah to be the festival of lights. I knew of the miracle that Hanukah celebrates, and was excited to learn what Diwali was all about.

The Festival of Lights for Diwali involves lighting small clay lamps filled with oil, which signifies the triumph of good over evil (similar to Hanukah!). There’s also fireworks and the sharing of sweets. It is celebrated from mid-October until mid-November, which puts Hanukah’s eight days to shame.
