hi mylot friends, Deepavali is celebrated throughout India on the 15th day of the month Kartik (October/November) in the Hindu calendar, which in fact is a Lunisolar calendar (moon & sun). It falls on Amavasya (Ammavaasa), the new moon night, that ends the month of Ashwina (Ashvin/Aasho/Aswayuja) and begins the month of Kartika. The 5 day festival begins on the 13th day in the dark half of Ashwin and ends on the 2nd day in the bright half of Kartika. As the calculation is primarily based on the moon, the day of Diwali Festival varies in the Gregorian Calendar between the 13th October and 14th November every year. It can also differ by 1 day, depending on the location in the world. For more information on the Hindu calendar and the calculation of the days of Deepavali, please refer to Wikipedia or here. I wish all mylot friends "Happy Diwali"
