Happy Diwali !!

Hello Friends,
Wishing You ALL A Very Happy Diwali. May this Festival Of  Lights bring in your lives Light, Prosperity & Success. Now for those friends who do not know about Diwali. Here's a little info:

Diwali, the festival of lights, is one of the important  festival celebrated in India. It is a celebration of lights, and for many, it is truly a sensory experience; some families decorate their houses with all sorts of lights and open up to the friends, relatives & neighbors, sharing their love and their food.

Those celebrating Diwali spend time with family and friends. They perform religious ceremonies to bring in wealth and prosperity for a new year, cook and eat delicious food, design rangolis or alpanas (ladies & girls draw traditional designs at their doorstep using powdered colors, powdered rice, flower petals etc), light up their lives by lighting diyas (small earthen lamps), candles and  fireworks. Some people also enjoy playing Cards on Diwali night.

Diwali is celebrated in honor of the lord Rama, who on this day returned from a 14 years of forest exile .

I enjoy decorating my entire house with Diyas & Making rangolis & look forward to bursting crackers & playing cards with friends & family.
