We read a non-fiction Diwali book, and a fiction one.
Diwali is a Hindu holiday. It is a beautiful holiday -- one of my favourites.
Diwali is the festival of light -- it celebrates the victory of light over darkness -- good over evil.
There are many candles lit in small diyas ( candle holders) inside and outside of the home.
There are often fireworks and then a family feast which includes many, many sweets.
What's not to like about this holiday?
