It is almost upon us again – DIWALI 2012
Diwali is the most important holiday in India and celebrated by millions of people around the world. Also known as the ‘Festival of Lights’ or ‘Deepavali’ (in Southern India) it is a celebration of Good over Evil and Light over Darkness.
Diwali is a major religious festival for Sikhs, Hindu’s and Jain’s all over the world nowadays and not just in India. The festival takes place over a 5-day period during October or November every year just as the monsoon season ends. The date varies every year according to the Hindu Luni-Solar calendar, according to the positions of the sun and moon. The day of Diwali falls on Ashvina Amavasya which is the first Lunar day of the New Moon and kicks off the beginning of the Hindu New Year. Many Indian businesses also use Diwali to signify the start of the new tax Year.
Over the 5-day celebration of Diwali prayer and thanks are offered up for prosperity and wealth, freedom from evil, beauty, wealth and wisdom. At night, Diyas or Dipa Lights will be lit and homes decorated with lanterns and fairy lights. Many people will also have fireworks displays after sun-down to share their celebrations with family and friends. Also, some Sikh Temples will also hold their own firework displays and Diwali parties for those who gather to pray.
The fourth day of the event, known as Govardhan Puja, is the main food day. It is said that Krishna defeated the god of rain by lifting Mount Govardhana to save his people from the floods. This is reflected in the ‘food mountains’ which are there to signify his triumph over evil.
The fifth and last day of Diwali is for siblings. On this day brothers buy gifts for their sisters and in return the sisters pray for their brother’s well being.
Throughout the holiday period, families gather to eat lots of food and sweets and to send greetings cards (like Christmas cards in the Christian faith).
There are 30 million Indian’s living outside of India nowadays thanks to re-location, migration and students leaving to attend University. We are all much more aware of the other religious celebrations taking place from all cultures today and should therefore take the opportunity to join them in their celebrations.

We have a huge range of products which would add that extra magic to an already colourful event.

Below is a video (and a really nice description) i found on youtube this morning……..cool
This was my 2011 private display for friends. All fireworks were purchased from Epic Fireworks (www.epicfireworks.com). This was my second Epic display and has now started an annual tradition of Epic fireworks displays. I hope this gives you a good idea of what sort of display can be achieved with a budget of around £750 from Epic.
This is almost all cat3 and the video was filmed at around 30 meters viewing distance.

Are You Looking For Professional Display Quality Fireworks – then look no further. We have the largest range of top quality fireworks which will create some of the most stunning aerial and ground effects you have every experienced.
We have fountains which are the perfect start to your show. The 1kg Super Conic fountain reaches around 30 feet into the sky with the most stunning falling and shooting stars. Lasting a little over 100 seconds, this is brilliant, beautiful and a great addition to any show.
We have what must be the largest and best performing consumer Catherine Wheel on the UK market, the Ring Of Fire. This huge wheel spins for a full 60 seconds with an almighty spread of silver, green and red stars and golden crackles. Another must have for this year’s Bonfire Night celebrations.
Here at Epic we are best known for two things, our rocket range and massive barrage range. The best of the bunch in regards to rockets is in my opinion the Sky Thriller rocket. This new improved version (difficult to improve on brilliant, but we managed it) is bigger, better and louder than before and sounds like a gas explosion. With a HUGE burst which fills the sky with an astounding single burst of giant glittering golden willow and seemingly unending descent of slow falling twinkling stars that hang in the sky for almost 10 seconds. A Beautiful addition to any show whether for Bonfire Night, New Year’s Eve or even a party or special celebration.
And finally, what Epic do best – BIG BRASH LOUD BARRAGES – Lets start with our very best. Starting with Thunderous Finale. There is little to be said that has not already been said about this barrage. If you want a finale to remember, you MUST have one of these.
Huge volleys of 4 shots at a time scream into the air before breaking into phenomenally large coloured palms which overlap giving the effect of a multi shell burst. The next 4 shots explode to produce electrifying clouds of crackles that absolutely fill the sky above you. Beautifully timed to create the perfect display, the sky is never empty with this monstrously powerful barrage. Culminating in a double 8 shot finale volley with silver crackling palms: An absolute essential for any finale.
And our lucky last, the wonderful new for 2012 Tornado Express. A ‘no nonsense’ fan finale barrage which alternates with swift large breaks of blue and gold stars, and massive white glittering peony breaks and a sky filling finale of golden crackling palms. Effects wise, this will be the closest you’ll ever get to a professional firework.
The upshot is, if you are looking for fireworks which leave your friends and neighbours green with envy, get in touch with us at Epic fireworks and we will be sure to make this year’s Bonfire Night display the best yet.
