The actual day of Diwali is on Thursday this year. We celebrated last weekend at the local temple. They have a very fun carnival atmosphere with food stalls, fire crackers, kids games like balloon darts, and archery. Our kids were begging for cotton candy but we got them little bags of popcorn. So funny how this little treat (which they get by the bag full at home) is so fun for them. The night was capped off with fireworks and dancing. We danced around the parking lot instead so we could make a quick getaway.
What do I really love? Getting everyone dressed up and taking pictures with the big camera.
Wishing you and your family a happy and healthy holiday season!!
