Happy Deepavali

Diwali

"Happy Deepavali" my friends. This year has been the most festive of all the years we have celebrated Deepavali outside the country. My blog friends have made it possible. The colorful and delicious display of sweets feels like visiting friends and family to exchange sweets. Daughter has been talking about Deepavali the past week which is surprising but that is because her class is celebrating Deepavali, she is going to school in a traditional Indian dress and the class has been asked to come in Indian outfits, they are going to make rangoli, light lamps and eat sweets. I am hoping the day will not be far off when Deepavali is declared a Holiday.

Also taking a moment to thank everyone who has walked the extra mile to help others and bring happiness to those who need it the most.


PEACE AND HARMONY


Have a great Holiday!

  7. Hi ISG,

    Wishing you and your family a happy and shubha Deepavali!

    Yes to declaring Deepavali a national holiday (atleast an optional holiday). We could hope, can't we?:)

    Glad to hear that the younguns are also celebrating the Deepavali this year at your daughter's school.
