Diwali is around the corner. Once again, the preparation and planning to celebrate the biggest festival of the Hindu religion has begun. Diwali is honoured to welcome the lord Ram home after defeating the demon Ravan. People clean, decorate their houses, buy new things and conduct a Maha Pooja at home.
Diwali is one such festival where you can find everything in bright colours. Whether it’s lighting, decorative and unique lanterns, or snacks and sweets, everything about Diwali is so exciting that people start planning for it from one month prior itself.
There are lots of things to be done during these festivals, and these things are the reason that makes Diwali more beautiful.
Here are specific ways in which you can celebrate Diwali
Go for Diwali Shopping
Diwali is all about shopping for new things for the house, buying new outfits, rangoli colours, lanterns, and purchasing new gold. We pray to Goddess Lakshmi so that she blesses us. Markets are filled up with fresh stock and the latest materials so that you can find new things.
Light Diyas and Lanterns
Lighting diyas and hanging Lanterns is the traditional way to celebrate this festival. The practice of doing this ritual is being followed since the Lord Ram era. People buy new lanterns with unique designs and styles, hang them in their house and light diyas in every corner of the room so that environment can get filled with spiritual feelings.
Prepare Diwali snacks and sweets
Food is an integral part of any festival, and the same is applied to Diwali. People prepare or buy snacks and sweets, which adds value to the celebration. Some prominent and famous Diwali snacks and sweets include Chakali, Laddos, Shakarpare, Chivda, Gulab Jamun, Roshgulla and many more.
Different people from different communities prepare their exceptional food; this Diwali prepares these snacks and fulfils your food cravings.
Invite your closed ones
Invite your close friends and family who are far, or you couldn’t interact with them in a busy schedule. Diwali can be the best occasion where you can bond back with your people, remember old memories, and create new ones by doing fun activities, playing games, and eating food together.
Draw Rangoli outside your house
Rangoli is an essential part of Indian culture. Drawing rangoli outside can bring positivity to your life. Intricate patterns of rangoli are the medium to start your day on a good note. Shop for flowers or buy different colours and make designer rangoli outside your house so that this Diwali, your home gets filled with positive vibes.
Donate to needy
There cannot be any best thing in the world to celebrate the festival by helping and donating stuff to the needy. Many people in the world suffer a lot and it is our duty as humans to help them and provide them with what they need. This Diwali, donate things that are not useful for you because somebody indeed does if you don’t need them!
Make your Diwali more auspicious and memorable this year by celebrating it in these unique ways.
