Today (October 26th) is Diwali -- known as the "Festival of Lights" and one of the most important Hindu holidays. Diwali is celebrated with the lighting of small clay lamps (diyas), sharing sweets, and fireworks. The holiday marks the Hindu New Year and the return of Rama from exile. It celebrates themes such as renewal and the triumph of good over evil. The World Kigo Database has several good haiku about Diwali: Here are two that I like from vishnu p kapoor: 

dark night--
tiny lamps take over
from autumn sun

Diwali night:
sparklers dazzling the dark
as they die
