Diwali Preparations

This being the last weekend before Diwali, its been a busy day prepping for the festival.

Malls and standalone stores look festive with all the decorations and lights.

We bought diyas.

And put up hanging lantern.

We wrapped gifts before rest of the family arrives tomorrow.

…And received the annual box of sweets from mom.

And of course, we bought firecrackers. We went firecracker shopping after more than a decade. Varun is scared of loud and noisy firecrackers, so we got only sparklers, fountain pots and zameen chakra. Can’t wait to burst them tomorrow!

In the evening, we lit a diya – looking forward to more fun and festivities tomorrow!!
