The moment one thinks of Diwali what comes to mind is lights, diyas and candles. But a close second are the combination of sweets and dry fruits that are a common gift during these days. And also the foremost serving for guests. Not only are dry fruits and sweets associated with Diwali but other major festivals as well.
Dry fruits around Diwali time are majorly a result of the season. The festival usually falls around approaching winter, the right time for their consumption. Also, they are easily stored and do not go bad due to the cold weather. An additional benefit is that dry fruits are a healthy food item.

So it symbolises the aspect of wealth and prosperity, thus an appropriate gift for Diwali, mostly as gift packs or gift hampers.
Sweets on the other hand are an evergreen favourite. They are a part of any and every festival the year round. Although the type of sweets changes with every season. Sweet signifies all that is good, positive and full of life. From children to grandparents, everyone enjoys sweets.

From laddoos, barfis and gulab jamuns to rasmalai, kheer and halwa, the variety is enormous to suit everyone’s taste. And as the festivals incorporate the modern world, chocolates have also fast become an acceptable Diwali gift apart from the traditional gifts.
It is hard to imagine any festival without the presence of these two items. Diwali would be incomplete without friends and family exchanging gifts without some dry fruits or mithai on the side. Be it a gift hamper, or just a plate full of the goodies with the tea, the celebrations are incomplete without them.

While festivals like Diwali, Dusshera and Durga Pooja are mostly about rituals and ceremonies and the religious aspect, there are many other things that make the festivities complete. New clothes, exchanging gifts with family or decorating the house with lights and diyas.
There is one part of any festivity that is possibly the most essential though, the food! No festival is complete without the traditional fare being served. Young and old, children and grandparents, friends and family, everyone looks forward to the delicious dishes and savouries that are cooked and served during these times.
There are in fact some food items that are typical to certain festivals. Sweets come foremost on the menu followed by the lip smacking salty savouries. Kheel Batasha are a big part of the pooja itself but also a big hit as a snack. Then come the Barfis which are more popular in the north of India, they are made in a range from kaju to khoya to plain milk. Down south or in Guajrat, sweets like Moti Pak and Mysore Pak are more popular. Gulgule are sweet dumplings often had with rabdi or kheer.
On the salty side many namkeen mixtures are popular as servings with tea for guests who visit to wish on Diwali. In areas like Bengal they make unique preparations like the Choddo Shaak, made from leafy greens. While in the south murukkus are famous and Chiwda in Maharashtra.
Food is one thing that brings people together and unites them and has always been an integral part of our culture. The list is endless as people from all regions across the country include foods from different parts of India into their own. Although the recipe could change over time, the idea of traditional foods is to save the essence of the original flavours and pass it on from generation to generation.
