Have A Very Happy Diwali!

Happy Diwali

Disclaimer: This post was published a little earlier than usual because I wanted it to still be Diwali when it went up.

I want to wish everyone a very Happy Diwali! As you guys know, Diwali is a very important and wonderful Indian tradition. It is probably the biggest Indian tradition (that’s a guess lol, I did not look it up online). I absolutely love Diwali myself. However, the last few Diwali’s have been a bit lonely. Since I was living in Canada and the pandemic happened, we did not really have the chance for any bigger celebrations. However, I am very happy that this year I will be able to spend Diwali with friends and family. This is the first time in like half a decade that I have been home for Diwali.

I also wanted to add something to this post. It’s Diwali and we are all super excited. And it is the Festival of Lights. I know a lot of people like to celebrate this day with fireworks. However, fireworks are not great for the environment. In fact, they do a lot of damage to it. Not only that, but louder fireworks scare the wildlife around and some animals are even literally scared to death. This Diwali, let’s be conscious of everything around us and let’s celebrate in a way that will do minimal or preferably no damage to anything around us.

That being said, have a very Happy Diwali, everyone!

  1. A Happy Diwali to you too. Great that you are considering the animals. I know my dog would be scared.

    1. Thank you so much. My cat gets very scared of the noise too.

  2. Happy Diwali to you. What are your Diwali traditions? I love Indian food as does my family but we rarely have Indian sweets. I think in Canada you normally would be able to enjoy Diwali in local celebrations. I hope I will be able to here now. I certainly can relate to the celebration of light and it is a theme I can relate to: light defeating darkness. Enjoy your special time and thank you for sharing.

    1. Thank you so much. Yes, there are quite a few Diwali celebrations in Canada and I went to them when I first came but for the last two years I couldn’t go due to the pandemic. I hear there were quite a few this year though.

      1. Did you see the Canucks Diwali jerseys? A local girl from Penticton sang O’Canada at the beginning of the game wearing a sari.

        1. No I’ll have to see that, that’s so cool.

    1. Thank you!

  34. Happy Diwali. What a beautiful festival with flowers and lights… and fireworks, which … Really? It can scare animals? I think you are right. I mean during Hurricane Sandy, our cat was really scared and even meowed differently…

    1. Thank you so much. Yeah animals always know when hurricanes and things like that happen. I remember my neighbours dogs began freaking out one day and an hour later there was a mild earthquake.

      1. I heard of stories like that… like animals have this six sense that humans don’t… Also human instruments are still not able to reproduce what animals can feel…

        1. Yeah they seem to be more connected to nature than humans.

  35. Happy Diwali! *Late* Such a beautiful tradition. I’m so glad you were able to be with family this year!

    1. Aw thanks so much, it was such a fun Diwali this year! Although I ate too much and now I’m on a diet lol 😂

  36. Happy Diwali to you even though am not familiar with it just know we celebrated it with you here

    1. Thanks so much.

  37. Diwali celebration is definitely an interesting and fun event😇

    1. It really is 🪔

  38. Is it too late to ask for some Diwali sweets lol… Happy belated Diwali

    1. Haha I’ll send some virtual sweets your way!
