Our Happy Diwali

First I can't recognise myself as this month I make posts again and again, and it's only mid of November :) Well, may be I discovered more things to blog about Sunny Indian Days which continue to be as such. Today is the eve of Indian Festival of Lights called Diwali or Deepavali. This one is one of my favourite holidays! House decorated with bulb lights, in the evening we will put lit diyas (small vessels made of clay) around the house and outside. This looks so festive! However Diwali is also such a joyful holiday because the families get together. Diwali for Indians (Hindus, Sikhs) is like Christmas and New Year for Christians.
My husband, thank God, came back from his awesome trip exactly before Diwali, and this what makes it so much happy for me. He brought so much joy in the house straight away and was like Diwali Santa, giving away all these yummy and fragrant stuff. I must say that he knows what we both like, and we like chocolate a lot!
This chocolate bar is made in Lippstadt, it has some of the city views on the cover. We haven't tasted it yet, I am sure it will be yummy!
 A set of sweets and a mug with Mozart's picture as a souvenir from Vienna.
 In order to celebrate my D's arrival and coming up Diwali we opened this lovely fizzy wine yesterday evening.
 We sat comfortably on the sofa, poured it in the glasses, and then I threw a look at the crochet cushion case... I said "Hey, dear, I spoke about it so much in my recent blog post. I need you to hold it tight and I'll take the picture!"
So here is he, clutching the cushion :) Yes, he liked it a lot!
And here's me hiding behind it. I am happy... Diwali is going to be great! We will go to buy different crackers and will make some noise in the evening! See how many of exclamation marks I inserted in my post!

Happy Diwali to you, my dear friends!Be Happy!
