This week we are celebrating Diwali. In case you didn’t know, Diwali is the biggest and brightest Hindu holiday. It is also known as the Festival of Lights. This five-day celebration also marks the beginning of the Hindu New Year. Think of Rosh Hashanah but with equal parts Hanukkah’s Festival of Lights and July 4th’s fireworks! As part of our celebration, we made some Diwali inspired arts and crafts with our nephew, Dylan, and niece, Keira.
If you are unfamiliar with Hindu mythology, Diwali commemorates the return of the Hindu God, Rama, from a 14-year exile after defeating the demon, Ravana. Villagers celebrated Rama’s return by illuminating the streets and their homes with lamps and firecrackers. On a deeper level, Diwali celebrates this triumph of good over evil. Hindus also believe that Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth, travels through all our homes on Diwali night and stops to bless the brightly lit homes.
Today, many Hindus celebrate Diwali by lighting candles and decorating their houses with colorful rangoli artworks using colored rice or powder. Some Hindus even launch large firework displays just like the villagers in the legend.
As part of our Diwali celebration, we made Diwali inspired arts and crafts with Dylan and Keira. They had a lot of fun creating fire cracker and lamp shapes out of foam board and decorating them with lots of glitter. Happy Diwali!
May every aspect of your life become as luminous and exciting as the lights flickering on the lamps in the festival of lights. Happy Diwali!––Anonymous
