AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 16 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO EXCEPTIONS TO SELLING OR POSSESSING FIREWORKS.
Diwali is a 5-day festival of lights, celebrated by millions of Hindus, Sikhs, and Jains across the world. The dates for Diwali change each year, but it usually falls in October or November. Fireworks are an essential component of Diwali and the third day of Diwali is the height of the festival. In recognition of the many Indo-Americans living in Delaware, this Act permits the sale and possession of sparklers and ground-based sparkling devices during a 30-day period before and including the third day of Diwali and the use of these items on the third day of Diwali.
