This year we celebrated Diwali quietly at home. My mother in law and I made jelabi, and we had other snacks. A good friend and her daughter visited and shared some of the day with us.
Elanor got one hand of mendhi done at the Diwali market. I did the other hand. I’m pretty sure everyone can figure out which is which.
The girls are a bit young to do a rangoli design with powder, so we bought one that’s printed out and stuck it on the floor outside our front door. Maybe in a few years when Rhi is older we’ll try to make a traditional one. We also bought and hung a few decorations.
I took the girls downstairs to light sparklers. Rhi needed a grownup to do it with her, so she only did one and Ellie was allowed three.
Worth noting–the Diwali exhibit at Gardens by the Bay that I featured in last week’s Wordless Wed is on until Sunday Nov 10.
