I am forever learning and growing as I learn more about India so that I can help our children learn more about where they are from.

Here are a few fun ways that I’ve helped to teach my daughters about the special holiday called Diwali.

What is Diwali

What is Diwali? Why is Diwali celebrated? The Festival of lights is a holiday celebrated around the world.

Diwali is a five-day festival of lights, celebrated by millions of Hindus, Sikhs and Jains across the world. The festival, which coincides with the Hindu New Year, celebrates new beginnings and the triumph of good over evil and light over darkness

No matter your background I do think it’s important for all children to know about the festivals around the world.
