Diwali Is The Sweetest Time of The Year

Bookmark (0)

The sweetest time of the year has arrived for me – Deepawali and I couldn’t be more delighted. This is the time when unrestricted sweets, scrumptious food, colourful fairy lights, rangolis and earthen lamps adorn my home. This time I plan to make Harry Potter and Avengers drawing for rangoli and I am very excited about it.

My grandparents always visit me during this time of the year and as our family tradition goes, every night, we play UNO and as a bonus I get to stay awake till the wee hours of the morning.

I have grown up hearing stories of Deepawali being a festival of lights, but I must add that it is also a festival of cleaning, cleaning and more cleaning; of every nook and corner of the house. One can see a broom in everyone’s hand  in the pre Diwali week. (as my grandmother says Cleanliness is next to Godliness.)

A few days before the festival my grandfather and I go to Jadu Babur bazaar to buy the crackers of my choice. My personal favourite is the sky lantern which makes me feel as though I am touching the stars.

This year is very special for me as my baby sister has arrived and I’ll be celebrating with her and I will show her the meaning of Deepawali as we pray together, laugh together and celebrate the smallest joys of life to the fullest forgetting all our worries.
