My Diwali Experience

diya22

Diwali is definitely one of my favourite times of the year for a number of reasons, “The weather, The festivities, The amazing food, The beautiful display of lights, but mostly The time we can enjoy with our Family and Friends.” Taking place in October or November depending on the Indian calendar, the weather is just turning cool and the holiday feel is already creeping up on everyone when “the Festival of Lights” rolls around. 🙂
Almost before one month, we started our Diwali preparations. To prepare for Diwali, we clean our entire house and paint it before diwali so that it shine. Shopping is my favourite thing for diwali. During festive season I only think about shopping, shopping and shopping 😀 this year I brought so many things, Sarees, Suits, So many Makeup items, Lights, Diyas, Some other Decorating items for my home, Soooo many Snacks and Sweets & etc, And ofcourse my jaan 😛 my yummy yummyyy Chocolates 😀 lol 😛 🙂

Here you can see my Henna (mehndi) in this pic 🙂 (Sorry the pic is not so clear 😦 )

On diwali day, we would start our morning by washing our doorstep and using Kumkum (a red powder) to draw Swastikas (along with having a religious significance, the Swastikas are thought to be auspicious and are drawn on the doorstep to bring luck and prosperity to your home.) Then We wear new clothes, put mehndi, visit temple during the early hours in the morning…Then we prepare some sweets and some other yummy snacks. Then in the evening we exchange gifts and cards. We light oil diyas and lamps, candles and put rangolis. Rangoli is a tradition in which colored powders and rice are used to make different designs on the ground. I love decorating my house with so many lights…I light up my house with so many diyas and candles. 🙂 Then later in the evening we start our Lakshmi aur Ganesh Pooja 🙂 and pray to god. & Then after pooja, finally we burst crackers. 😀
