Diwali! It’s that time of year when a mother waits for her children to come back home, that time of year when everybody gets together and makes new memories and yes, it’s that time of year when it’s all about celebration! Crackers, sweets, gifts and family. Whether you are in any part of the country, Diwali is a celebration for everybody.
The festival of lights starts with Dhanteras and ends with Bhai Dooj. It’s a festival which needs a full month to prepare for and a full week is needed for its hangover to subside. With Diwali being a festival where we celebrate the return of Lord Rama back from his exile, Goddess Laxmi is also worshipped. Everybody celebrates it in a different way but let’s look at a few things that should definitely be done by you during the festival.
1. Make a Rangoli
The Art of Rangoli requires a lot of patience and finesse but its a lot of fun. The fact that you spend a lot of time making a Rangoli and then it turns out to be a beautiful little thing, it’s a proud moment. And then the compliments make it worth it all.
2. Say no to crackers
Don’t burn crackers. It’s only noise and pollution. Try making this Diwali a festival of lights and not of noise.
3. Spread love and happiness
This festival is all about triumph of goodness, happiness, prosperity and worships. And the simplest way of worshiping god is by loving his creations and making others happy. This diwali light up someone’s life and spread some smiles.
4. Eat Sweets. Eat like you will not get fat.
When it comes to Diwali and when it comes to food, let’s just forget that some of it can make us fat. Since it’s Diwali, you should eat food. LOADS OF FOOD.
5. Spend some time with the family
Diwali is that one time of the year when people who have not met for months get together. That time should be spent eating, laughing and enjoying.
Diwali time is an amazing time. You wouldn’t even realise when it comes knocking at your door but it comes and reminds you that the year is almost coming to an end. It reminds us of Lord Rama’s triumph and of the fact that we should gear up for the next year.
Here’s wishing all of you a very Happy Diwali and hoping that you guys have the best of luck in your future errands. And here’s wishing that you keep reading our articles too!
