Shant and family
Anyhow, it has the same purpose and system for Hindus all over the world. It's a celebration of good conquering the evil. A time for families and friends' to gather,pray and celebrated this Festival Of Lights.
As for me, i was lazying around the house and visiting my parents and friends in the evening.
My husband and i spent time watching tv,browsing,went out for lunch and strolling. Later, went to my parents place for muruku and tea. Then, towards 7pm, visited my friend's place,had dinner and drove back home. My son visited his friends' during the day and brought back some 'angpow' money and fire crackers.
well, we give thanks to God for another peaceful day this year.
