Diwali Festival Fun
Diwali is a time for fun and revelry. During Diwali, India comes to a
standstill except for family life and feasts. Diwali means decorating the
house with tiny earthen lamps, wearing crisp new clothes, bursting
, meeting family and friends and of course enjoying the
scrumptious sweets and savories prepared specially for this occasion.
Fun, frolic, frenzied
Diwali Festival imparts an unprecedented fun, hope, value, a whole platter
of creativity in form of making colorful rangoli patterns, special Diwali
recepies, playing cards and making greeting cards. Regardless of its origin
and local interpretations, Diwali is a day of fun, festivities and joy for
people of all ages, throughout India. Weeks before Diwali, every Hindu
family is busy painting and decorating their homes with Diwali Rangoli
and shopping for gifts.
On the diwali day, shops are packed with people buying freshly made sweets
and fire crackers; mothers are busy preparing special dishes for the family
feasts. Late evening is the time for a special Pooja ( worship) at home, and
illuminating the exterior of their houses with the rows of oil lamps,
candles and colourful lanterns.
Streets, stores and buildings are lit with electric lights and neon signs
in such a way that the dark amavasya night and every street echoes with the
laughter of children. People dressed in new clothes, visit relatives and
friends to exchange greetings and gifts.
