Diwali will be a holiday in America, a bill was introduced in the New York Assembly


Indians live in many places in the world and they celebrate the festival of Diwali with great pomp. Diwali is a public holiday in India and people celebrate these days in a very special way. The biggest highlight right now is that Diwali will be a holiday in the US as a bill has been introduced in the New York Assembly to declare it a federal holiday.

When the Diwali Day Act is passed by Congress and President Joe Biden signs it, the Diwali holiday will be declared the 12th public holiday in the United States. Congresswoman Grace Meng, speaking to the media after introducing the bill in the House of Representatives, said it is one of the most important days of the year for billions of people around the world.

Everyone will celebrate Diwali together

Congress member Meng said the holiday would allow family and friends to celebrate Diwali together. This will show how much importance the government attaches to the diverse cultural diversity of the nation. He said that the celebration of Diwali in Queens of New York is wonderful. Don’t know how many people come to see it every year.

America is strong because of these reasons: Meng

Meng said America’s strength comes from the diverse experiences, cultures and communities that make up this country. He said that the Diwali Day Act is a step towards educating all Americans and celebrating the full face of American diversity. I look forward to Congress taking this bill forward. Congresswoman Grace Meng represents New York’s 6th Congressional District.

Pennsylvania declared on Diwali

Pennsylvania was the first US state to declare Diwali a public holiday. For this, a resolution was passed unanimously in the House. For this, a bill was introduced in the House in February. The bill was introduced by Senators Greg Rothman and Nikhil Saval. The bill states that Pennsylvania has a large population of South Asians. These people celebrate Diwali with great pomp, so this day should be declared a public holiday.
