Diwali 2020

Diwali 2020 was a different one but so special. We usually spend a fun, festive evening with our family in Mississauga. However, because of Covid restrictions, decided to do our own thing at home. We invited our niece, did our own family prayers, invited a few people to view the deeyas outside and then had a lovely family meal, just us five. We also tried our hand at making different Trinidadian/Indian sweets-- 2 out of 4 were near hits, LOL! Oh well! I didn't take nearly enough pictures but here are just a few....

We invited some neighbours to light a deeya and they were thrilled.

In Trinidad, the deeyas are so beautiful when they are lit but being indoors and with very windy, cold outdoor conditions, we have to make some slight alterations in Canada.

We put up our Christmas lights to add to the Divali resplendence.

If you look closely on the driveway, you'll see some deeyas (aka electronic tealights)

Not a very good shot but the only one we got!!!

Different but so special.... Light over darkness, the meaning of Divali,  holds a special meaning in 2020!

Have a wonderful Friday, friends!!!

Linking up with Andrea.

  3. Lovely!! Glad you were able to celebrate, even if it is smaller than normal. Light over darkness is a good reminder for everyone.


Hearing from you makes me so happy!!
