Festival of lights!

Diwali is here and I can’t stress enough about my excitement for this festival. Diwali has always been special to me as it reminds me of my childhood. My mom is a cleanliness freak and during Diwali, her OCD peaks to another level. Right after dussehra, she would instruct everyone in my family to clean their rooms and my brother and I would clean ours grumpily. Then came the exciting part of shopping for Diwali. Mumma would make sure that we have shopped well in advance and she would also plan what she wants purchase on Dhanteras. She would drag me to 10 different shops to find perfect diyas to light up our entire house. She always prefers diyas over fairy lights, says it looks better.

The festivities would start on Dhanteras, followed by Choti Diwali and Diwali. Since morning all of us would be cleaning for the last time and start preparing puja room for evening. My duty had always been of placing diyas in the entire house and my brother would be filling diyas with oil and bati. πŸ™‚ We would then change into new clothes and sit for puja. Once we are done with it, we would be lighting diyas everywhere and start bursting crackers (just for Shagun, I vehemently protest against bursting crackers). The day would end with gorging in Diwali sweets and delicacy.

Ahh! This is the first time I am not there at home to bask in the celebrations but here I am celebrating my favorite festival with another family.

Hope you all have a safe, happy and prosperous Diwali. ❀
