The Best Diwali Wishes and Messages to Send to Your Loved Ones

There are many ways to say “Happy Diwali!” Encourage your kids to send thoughtful Diwali wishes and messages to your loved ones to celebrate the occasion. We have some great messages and quotes for your kids to choose from, or they could even come up with their own!  

Why Send Diwali Messages?

Diwali is a time of joyous celebrations and one of the most fun festivals in India for kids. Diwali is known as the ‘festival of lights’ because people traditionally celebrate with activities like lighting candles and diyas (earthenware oil lamps) and firework displays. Many customs and traditions are attached to the festival, including card giving. Let your kids share their joy and happiness at this time of year with loved ones by sending them Diwali wishes – they could even make a homemade card to write their Diwali message in. Grandparents, siblings, teachers, and friends will love to receive warm wishes from your little ones.

Diwali Wishes and Messages:

If your kids are feeling crafty they can make their own cards to write a Diwali message in like these Oil Lamp Cards you can find on the Activities for Kids page. Once they have a card to write their wishes in you can help them choose a joyful message from our selection here:  

Good over evil, Light over dark, Let’s celebrate the triumphs of the festival of lights, Happy Diwali!

5 days of celebration filled with lights and joy, let’s celebrate together and pray for happiness and prosperity for the coming year. Happy New Year!
May your Diwali be filled with light, hope and happiness!  Even though you may be far away, We light a diya for you on this day, And keep you in our thoughts as we pray. Happy Diwali!

I wish you the brightest Diwali you have ever seen to bring you happiness for the New Year!  Thank you for the light you bring into my life. Have a joyful Diwali!
