Time Out says:
"Diwali is the type of holiday everyone can get behind: The annual Indian festival celebrates the triumph of light over dark, and there’s nowhere more lit than Times Square. To ward off evil and kindle an awareness of our inner light, Hindus let diyas, or clay oil lamps, burn all holiday long. In the tradition of Times Square tackiness, this hallowed ceremony goes down with LED lights and digital fireworks on some of the square’s biggest and brightest screens. They’ll see this rager from space".
