Diwali- A Festival of Lights!
Today we have on our blog Nathan to talk
about one of the most cherished festivals in India.
I come from a land with diverse culture, religion, languages, food,
race and I am so Thankful for everything my culture has taught me.
On the other side of the world at this very moment all my friends,
family and relatives are celebrating the festival of lights-Diwali.
Diwali is the triumph of good over evil.
Family friends gather together to celebrate this
joyous occasion by lighting lamps.
Every single house has lamps lit and set of fireworks.
When I was a kid my cousins would come over and we would play
with fireworks all night long! Of course under adult supervision.
When we get tired we would nibble on
sweets ( good sugar rush to keep us going).
We would play for 2 nights and its one festival we have a
lot of fun. (2nd to Christmas....LOL)
A perfect way to put it is......Its Christmas with fireworks!!!
Since I cannot play with fireworks here I lit candles at ArtQuest
and made a table top to reminisce my childhood.
I used pink linens which we call "Rani Pink" with
Green Cymbediums, Yellow and Purple Calla lilies.
