Diwali, also known as the Festival of Lights, is on Thursday, and there are a few shops across Toronto offering the sweetest treats to celebrate the occasion.

For those who may not know what the festival entails, it is a time where families unite to pray and be thankful. The festival itself signifies peace and joy and the strength of good over evil.

It is celebrated over five days, where people clean their homes and decorate their space with rangoli, candles and eat traditional meals.

And to end off a wholesome meal, there must be sweets. Thankfully, Toronto has a few sweet shops offering Indian treats to celebrate the Festival of Light in the best way possible.

Here are four shops to get Diwali treats this year:
