Happy Diwali!

Today marks the second day of Diwali – a Hindu festival of lights! Yesterday, on the first day of Diwali, we were so lucky to have the opportunity to learn about this amazing celebration and some traditions that are associated with it. Thank you so much to Keyuri and her mom for reading us stories, feeding us traditional snacks, giving us diyas to decorate, and letting the boys decorate rangolis while the girls got dressed up with bhindis, hair stickers, and henna tattoos. It was such a cool experience and I know we all learned so much! 🙂
