Diwali is a festival we celebrate in India. It has its roots in our mythology but the festival has changed over centuries to represent the ideas that good triumphs over evil and light always follows darkness.
Although there are many legends associated with celebrating Diwali, in fact, you will find different regions of India each have their own legends but this will give you a broad idea of the most common legend behind celebrating this festival - http://www.diwalicelebrations.net/diwali-legends/victory-rama.html

Happy reading and Happy Diwali! :)
