There are different beliefs about Diwali in Skanda, Padma and Bhavishya Purana. According to a legend, Maharaja Prithu exploited the earth and made the country prosperous with wealth and grains. That's why we celebrate Diwali. According to Shrimad Bhagavatam and Vishnudharmottara Purana, Lakshmi appeared on the new moon day of Kartik month from the churning of the ocean.
The Markandeya Purana says that when there was only darkness on the earth, the goddess seated on a lotus appeared with a bright light. She was Lakshmi. The world was created by his light. Hence there is a tradition of Lakshmi Puja on this day. At the same time, there is a tradition of celebrating Deepawali to welcome Shri Ram back to Ayodhya.
