Look at these glorious images with all the Indian colors. In a few hours, my Indian friends will begin their celebration ! Happy Diwali!
Celebration of Light with candles twinkling in the winter night! Welcome to the biggest Indian festival, lasting for five days, and filled with color and joy. . . .Diwali. The candles make me think of Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, White Dog Festival ( Iroquois Native American Festival) and Christmas…..light in the winter darkness. Diwali began as a religious festival to celebrate good overcoming evil, but today it is celebrated by most Indians regardless of religion as a beginning of the New Year. It is the beginning of the Hindu calendar year and is the celebration of blessings, life, and family. It is as important in India as Christmas is in the United States.
Preparations begin with shopping: Ah , the vibrant Indian colors. . . . .
