Happy eid to you as well.
It is surely a matter of time before these will both have to be called "November Celebrations" to avoid offending anyone.But, before they are, Happy eid and Diwali.

My dog-eared copy of Hobson-Jobson defines the word Golmal thus:
GOOLMAUL, GOOLMOOL, s. H.
gul-mul, 'confusion, jumble'; gol-mal karna, 'to make a mess'
[1877.- "The boy has made such a gol-mol (uproar) about religion that there is a risk in having anything to do with him."
- Allardyce, City of Sunshine, ii. 106]
