Since Ihavemy own home and child, what better time thanDeepavali to start cultivating our customs and rituals at home. Not that I did not observe anything at all in the past year, but for our family,Deepavali is the festival of all festivals. So I made it a point to go all out to bring intheDeepavaliness to our home-this year.Did some paint patch up, sent curtains for laundry, did a traditional Indian sweet (ghee balls), bakedsugee balls &cornflakes, orderedmurrukkus, ribbonmurrukkus, brought inHaldiram’s assorted goodies from India, not to mention baking cakes and chocolate chip cookies soon.Perhaps, I would fry some yummilicious vadai on Deepavali day!
I feel so grown up and smug like a typical lady of the house-making myself all busy and fussing about Deepavali. 😀
