Diwali is one of the most awaited festivals of the year. It celebrates the triumph of good over evil. The festival goes on for 5 long days. The celebration of Diwali includes exchanging gifts, binging on sweets, lighting diyas, bursting crackers, decorating the house and having family get togethers. However, in recent times the celebration of Diwali has evolved greatly.

But, that doesn’t mean that you can’t make the most of the festive season.
Here are a few ways in which you can celebrate Diwali differently while also making the most of the festive season:
1. Do a little Charity
Diwali is all about gifting. While, there is no denying that Charity begins at home, helping the underprivileged and lesser fortunate ones is equally important. Bringing a smile on someone’s face is just going to brighten your Diwali all the more.
2. Opt for Guilty free sweets
When you are surrounded with sweets, it is hard to resist indulging in them, especially if you have a sweet tooth. Don’t let your diet plan or health issue stop you from satisfying your sweet tooth. There are various guilt free sweet options in the market that include sugar free and healthy sweets.
3. Visit an orphanage or old age home
You don’t always need money to do good, sometimes your time is the most valuable gift that you can give. Spare some time from your hectic diwali schedules and visit an orphanage or old age home.
4. Indulge in a spa session
