Today we celebrated Diwali here at day care.
Diwali is a Hindu festival of lights which symbolises the spiritual "victory of light over darkness, good over evil and knowledge over ignorance. We decorated the centre in brightly coloured lanterns and candles, and had a dress up for the occasion too. Ishwari cooked butter chicken and mango lassi, and Parthiv's Mum Amisha made a traditional jelly sweet.
Ishwari and Amisha also spent hours creating lots of beautiful henna art on the children and teachers.
We had a wonderful celebration, Happy Diwali!
