Here's a better page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diwali

Now if you are not happy about its content, you can just modify it!

Diwali celebrates Rama's homecoming,his return to Ayodhya after the defeat of Ravana.Starting of New Hindu Year.Planning starts after Dassera,another festival 18 days before Diwali.Generally here is the sequence:
1)After Dasera,see the Hindu calendar and check when is Diwali.
2)If it comes on Friday or Monday then apply for 1 day vacation,If its not on Friday or Monday,calculate accordingly.
3)Purchase new clothes.
4)Purshase crackers/fireworks for kids.
5)If elders are there in family,be good with them 1 month in advance so that they will help you in making some traditional sweets.Otherwise purchase from market.
6)Clean you house with the help of kids.
7)Purchase lanterns(aakash kandil)/oil lamps.
8)Identify the people to whom you will be giving sweets as gifts.If you want,then you need to give!
9)Ask kids to purshase some Diwali greeting cards which you will be sending to many people(relatives,govt. officers,politicians,friends)
10)On the first day of Diwali,get up at 4 or 4:30 AM.
11) Apply paste of gram flour and fragramt powder to your body.
12)Have a bath.
13)Suggest everybody to go through steps 10/11/12.
14)Get ready to listen ,deafening sounds of crackers played by other people.
15)Join them.
16)Come back home and eat the sweets and other things.(Don't forget to wear those newly purchased clothes)
17)Exchange sweets with neighbours.How soever may be their quality,you must say sweets made by others taste great.
18)Call your relatives which you forgot to send greeting cards.and even if they are 1000 KMs away,request them to come to your house for eating sweets.
19)Now identify the people which are good for your business/job etc.You must courier these gifts in advance to people staying in another town.Go to thoese useful people and give them those gift with big smile on your face.Depending on the relationship,you may also recieve some gift in return.
Diwali goes for 3 days.Step 19 runs for 3days.All above steps should be executed on day 1.
Some other rancher will write steps for day2 and day3 here as Diwali comes closer.

Nice one
But step 10 applies only in Tamil Nadu right? In Andhra Pradesh, I dont think ppl get up early in the morning and burn crackers. It's done in the evening. Or is this the way ppl celebrate in North India?? I do it both in the morning as well as in the evening cos I belong to both the states
