Why Diwali is celebrated each year on Amavasya in October or November?

The origin and this significance behind celebrating Deepavali are derived from the Hindu epic Ramayana.

According to this ancient tale, Lord Rama returned to his kingdom of Ayodhya after an exile of 14 years and a victorious battle against the demon king Ravana. Amavasya was chosen as the day for Diwali celebrations in order to honour Lord Rama’s triumphant return from Lanka and victory over evil forces.

When Lord Rama returned home after 14 years, the people of Ayodhya decorated their houses and lit lamps, since then this festival is being celebrated like this every year.

And even today people decorate their homes and light them up.
