Friday Favourites- Divali 2018

Yay for Friday, friends! Here are just a few photos from Divali (the Festival of Lights) that we celebrated earlier this week. We took some time at home to do our family prayers and then headed to our family's place for dinner and more prayers. Unfortunately, I didn't get too many pics but here we go.

Preparing our deeyas for home. Traditionally, deeyas are clay pots filled with oil and lit with cotton wicks. All the twinkling flames are so beautiful.

Divali is huge for eating as well!




 And dressing up!



 HA!




So hard to wrangle these kids for a shot




A wonderful evening of faith, family, food and fun!

A friend of mine sent this to me of their celebrations in Trinidad. We have to keep most of our deeyas lit indoor in the windy fall in Canada but in Trinidad where it's hot, the deeyas are lit outside. It is a most magnificent sight.



Linking up with
and Andrea, Erika and Narci for Favourites on Friday

  6. You looks gorgeous! LOVE the outfit. I used to love celebrating divali with my Hindu neighbors in Trinidad and everyone, whether Hindu or not, would light up deeyas outside their homes for the occasion. Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis
