Why do we draw Rangoli?

Rangoli is an important part of Hindu festivals and celebrations. But ever wondered why do we draw Rangoli. It symbolizes happiness and prosperity. It is a welcome sign for Goddess Lakshmi.
Rangoli are basically a sign of welcome – part of Aditi Devo Bhava – guests are equal to god.
The popular belief across India is that Rangoli invites Goddess Lakshmi into the home.
It also stands for cleanliness.
