Diwali – Festival of Light

During the month of November we have been celebrating the Indian festival of Diwali. Diwali is known as the Festival of Light it is a time for giving and is celebrated with fireworks, dancing, eating lovely food and being with family and friends. We´ve looked at how the children in India celebrate this special time of year and some of the things they do, the clothes they wear and the decorations they put up in their homes. All together we made a Rangoli, it is a mandala-type design which welcomes all good things. We certainly enjoyed doing it. Happy Diwali!
