Diwali

Diwali, the Holiday of Lights, is one of the biggest holidays for Hindu families.  It is celebrated on the new moon between October and November and this year was on Wednesday, October 26.

We were in Chamba and part of me wishes we could have been in Gwalior or another city where we could have seen the ‘real’ celebrations.

When we were reading and learning about India before coming this year, I had found a few kids books on the holidays and read a these books on Diwali.  Siena really wanted to be here for Holi, the Festival of Colors.  But we thought we’d get to see Diwali and that was good too.

Sweets someone bought to share and celebrate.
