This year President Obama wished a happy Diwali (India's festival of lights)
to Hindus, Jains, Sikhs and Buddhists -from DC. In 2010 the Obamas
celebrated Diwali with kids at a school in Mumbai:

I wasn't aware that Indian Buddhists celebrate Diwali at all. Do they? I
mean they might participate with friends and neighbors, but it's not one of
their holidays, right? 
In India they are usually Theravadins or Tibetan Buddhists.  
Does anybody know the answer?
