A lovely picture of the Diwali celebration~ My Mom loved this special time in India and she loved lighting candles and putting up Christmas lights when we were growing up. Diwali is about celebrating the fight of good over evil, being with family, lots of food and light. I will be lighting a special candle in honor of my Mom's memory this year. I hope that I too can pass on special Indian celebrations to my children one day.
