Here are some things you can do this Diwali
Forget crackers, here's a list of things that you can do on Diwali.
Diwali is here and we just can’t keep calm! We hear you Delhi! So what if crackers are banned? There are loads of other things to do during Diwali. The ‘Festival of Lights’ is one of the most exciting festivals in the world. Traditionally a Hindu celebration, Diwali is now celebrated by almost every one.
We’ve created a list of things that you can do this Diwali:
Decorate your house
This is that time of the year when you can go on a cleaning mission in your house. It’s simple. If it’s dirty, you clean it. Remove those clothes you’ve dumped on your chair. When was the last time you checked under your bed? Try reorienting the furniture. And if you’re someone who is already clean, then try giving your house a new look.
It’s your cheat day
Every day is not Diwali so you don’t have to go easy on the calories. Food is celebration and celebrations call for food. Fill yourself up with sweets and all those calorie rich dishes you’ve been avoiding for so long. Remember, YOLO (You Only Live Once, sillies!).
Take a vacation
If you’re someone who finds it hard to get a few days off, this is your moment. Most schools, colleges and even offices are likely to stay closed for a few days. If you haven’t already planned a vacation, take a trip to a nearby location or go on a long drive.
As Diwali is the festival of lights it goes without saying that diyas are a big part of it. In fact Diwali is just not complete without lighting diyas. The story goes that when Lord Rama returned to Ayodhya after his years of exile, people celebrated by decorating the kingdom with diyas. The tradition of lighting earthen lamps dates back to pre-historic times.
Have fun with family and friends
Diwali is a great time to catch up with your family and friends over dinner or through casual meetings. If you are lucky enough to be in a neighborhood that has its own Diwali pandal, visit it. You’ll get to meet a lot of new people and even gorge on the delicious sweets.Read More
