MAC Cosmetics celebrates Diwali, the most important Hindu festival. Diwali, also known as the ‘festival of lights’, is celebrated each autumn as a symbol of victory of light over darkness, or good over evil. The festival of Diwali takes place on the fifteenth day in the month of Kartik when winter seasons begins. The brightest of all Hindu festivals is marked by four days of celebration, each marked by a different tradition. The celebration includes millions of lights illuminating the whole country, and enlightening the skies with firecrackers.
From untruth lead us to Truth.
From darkness lead us to Light.
From death lead us to Immortality.
Om Peace, Peace, Peace.
