On Friday before vacation, Radha's Dad came in to talk with us about their family tradition of celebrating Diwali.
Radha's Dad presented a wonderful slide presentation to explain the history of Diwali.
We learned that Diwali is the Festival of Lights. They light candles to help the evil go away and also light off "Crackers" also know as fire crackers. People who celebrate Diwali decorate their homes with rangoli, exchange gifts and share a feast with family.
Diwali is celebrated in October or November.
