As you know, we have been learning about festivals and traditions in Peru, Tunisia, India and Ukraine.
One of India’s favorite festivals is called Diwali. It is also known as “The Festival of Lights.” To celebrate Diwali, people place clay oil lamps on windows, doors and balconies. Many people will go to the temple to pray. Like many of our celebrations, people in India will feast and enjoy many sweets during this special time. They also light firecrackers in the evening to scare off evil spirits.
Please enjoy the Diwali firework display that we have created!
