Hindus all over the world will be celebrating Diwali including me.
Diwali is the Festival of Lights and celebrates Light over darkness. See the Wiki link for the more info. about Diwali.
I miss being able to be at home in Trinidad for Diwali. Back home I would celebrate by fasting, cleaning, doing a Lakshmi Puja (prayers). After the puja would come my favorite part, lighting diyas and fireworks.
A diya is a small oil filled clay pot that’s lit with a wick. It’s been 9 years since I’ve had a ‘proper’ Diwali back home.
