I call this week “Holi Week” because based on the Hindu calendar, every day starting today is religiously significant leading up to Diwali on Friday. Diwali is a holiday, where good conquers evil and light extinguishes darkness. Traditionally diyas are placed and lit around the home, rangoli grace the floors, kandils or colorful paper lanterns are strung and festive foods are prepared all while celebrating with family and friends.
Since it's autumn in the US, we can take advantage of the season, the changing leaves and the colors to decorate our home and reflect where we live. Bring a little autumn into your home and Fall in love with Diwali.
