Happy Diwali

Today is Dillon’s first Diwali – the festival of light for Sikhs and Hindus around the world. 

Diwali is a celebration of light, knowledge and good nature. It is usually marked by gifts, redecorating houses brightly and lighting lots of candles around the house. 

I have lit several candles for Dillon, Harv and I today. I learnt today there is a significance for lighting candles in water – old folklore tales in India say flames by water protect you, bring happiness and luck to you.
