“My Diwali celebration with my host family was really awesome! I studied the Indian tradition too. On Diwali, I woke up at 7 am. and I took Seasame oil bath I felt fresh on that day. Host mother made Gulab jamun for us. Myself and host family went to native of host father and I went to temple in their native village. I celebrated Diwali in my host father native place by burning crackers. At 4pm. we came back to home. And we were waiting for night to celebrate Diwali again.”
