NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Tri-state area lawmakers took to social media Wednesday to send their constituents Diwali greetings.

The holiday, which kicked off Wednesday, is the five-day Hindu festival of lights. It's celebrated every fall and coincides with the Hindu New Year. It symbolizes the spiritual "victory of light over darkness, good over evil and knowledge over ignorance."
