Today is Diwali, the festival of lights, celebrated by millions of Indians around the world.

I make my own little attempt to bring the light and love of Diwali into my home every year with a rangoli design.

Diwali is about spreading goodness and happiness into the world around you and dispelling the darkness and negative acts and thoughts.

The tiny candles or diyas remind us that we can surround ourselves with this positive light at all times.

It’s also a time of renewal when we can look back at our year and think about all the good wishes to come.

And let’s not forget the absolutely yummy sweets and treats!! I think I”ll go pick some up now!

Wishing you all a very Happy Diwali and a sweet year ahead!
