So with all that said, many people might be wondering what Diwali is. Well, you can read more about it here. I will tell you what my family does for this festival normally. We do the basics such as preparing awesome food, praying to goddess Laxmi and wearing beautiful Indian clothes. (This year, I'm wearing a Sari I bought from India during my visit there.) We have visitors come by the house and we serve all the delicious food and prasad to them. We then play with some fireworks. Not the July 4th stuff, just the basic Sparklers most of the time! I found this awesome website that sells the sparklers. You can order them here. Its alot of fun and the festival always brings our family together emotionally. One this day, all my siblings get together and we plan the perfect time to seek blessings from my grandmom and mom. This usually brings tears to their eyes because normally we aren't so nice (^_^).
Personally, I love Diwali... Its a time when family gets together and has an awesome time! Its one of my favorite times of the year!
