Send your Diwali pictures

Diwali, the Hindu festival of lights, is the most popular of all the festivals from South Asia. It is also an occasion for celebration by Jains and Sikhs.

The festival celebrates the victory of good over evil, light over darkness and knowledge over ignorance.

It's a time of fireworks, gifts, great food and family get-togethers.

The BBC news website will be putting together a photo gallery of images from this year's festival.
