Diwali

Today, November 1st, is the day to celebrate Diwali, the festival of Light.  Diwali is also known as Deepawali. “Deepa" in Sanskrit means “light" and “avali" means “a row." Diwali celebrations in India are similar to Christmas and Hanukkah festivities in the west.  There are actually five days of celebration, with Diwali, the third day, falling on the new moon night.  This is considered an especially auspicious time for shopping, starting new projects and businesses or moving into a new home.  To commemorate these special days, it is traditional to exchange sweets, wear new clothes and buy jewelry.  Since this is the festival of lights, candles and lanterns are very important to have in every household.  The flame is a symbol of an illuminated mind.  Check out some beautiful Diwali e-cards at:
