Diwali is coming!!! It is my most favorite holiday of the year! This year Diwali falls on November 14th. We start getting ready for Diwali a couple of weeks ahead of time. We make sweets, buy new clothes, clean the whole house from top to bottom and decorate the home. So many things to do. So little time! Currently, our kitchen is full of fragrant smells of tasty Diwali sweets being made. So yummy! For Diwali we also make a big feast of special vegetarian dishes including savory snacks and sweets. After we finish our prayers, we break our fast by feasting on these special dishes! Afterwards we light diyas, candles and string lights. Back in Fiji, we also played with fireworks & sparklers and shared our feast with neighbors, friends and family. After eating, we would drive around to check out everyone's Diwali decorations and lights. Here, Diwali is a bit quieter but just as special. I just absolutely love Diwali you guys! Happy Heart!
