New Year Cards
The Indian Calendar is a long list of festivals observed all throughout the year. They are not only large in number but also varied because India is a land of various religions, caste and creed. In fact, India is unity among diversity. Different colors, feast, gaiety and prayers characterize and distinguish the festivals and Indian New Year from each other. The most celebrated festival is the Indian New Year all over India in different manner and customs. Some of them are listed here:

Hindu New Year
‘Deepavali’ marks the beginning of the Hindu New Year and Lord Ganesha and Goddess Lakshmi is worshipped on this Day.
Lord Ganesha is the symbol of auspiciousness and wisdom, whereas goddess Lakhsmi is the symbol of Wealth. On this day, people light diyas to scare away evil and welcome positivity, good health and wealth and prosperity in the family. It comes in the month of November each year. Some people also celebrate Baisakhi as the beginning of New Year
