Today is a very important day for us, the festival of Diwali! It is a festival of lights for celebrating the victory of good over evil. This day we wear new clothes, eat festive food and burst a lot of crackers (fireworks). We decorate the house with fresh flowers and beautiful lamps. We started the celebration last evening and the kids had a blast! It was good to teach the kids about this Indian festival and the story behind it.
