“This Diwali was my favorite festival by far. I had such an amazing time with parties, shopping, and the gorgeous lights. My family and I painted over 60 lanterns and put them around the house, it was time consuming but worth it. I took it upon myself to put oil and wicks in each then light them. I absolutely loved it. My family hosted a big party and we had lots of people and food and lights, it was a great experience. We also lit many firecrackers on the roof for the celebration.”
