Diwali 2013 - Lights, Fireworks, Candles

One week has passed after Diwali, already one week! The festival season has gone, however here and there are scraps of celebrations: lights on the houses, rare sounds of crackers, tea with gifted sweets and dry fruits... People don't want to let go this merry time, so I in order to give a tribute to it too have a collection of these clicks for you. 
My table with a jar candle holder and a mini marigold bouquet.
Fireworks by our neighbours.
Our so called "chakra" fireworks - such a peculiar picture!
One more "chakra" - amazing view!
A calming view of the diyas (lamps) we put on the house wall during Diwali. All the neighbours do it too, and it creates cozy and cheerful atmosphere around.
I don't have many pictures this time, but all are truly of Diwali spirit - a festival of light.
Have a happy Sunday and a great week ahead!

  2. Diwali is starting to be a more visible holiday here in Canada too, especially in cities with a large South Asian population. Anything which helps to light up our dark nights is welcome fun!

    That candle has a very "peculiar" shape, indeed!

  14. I love the idea of a festival of lights - especially in November. The closest we get is Valborg/Beltane in spring, but it's not the same.
