Diwali

This week we have been learning about Diwali. Diwali is the Hindu festival of lights. It gets its name from the row of clay lamps that Indians light outside their homes. We talked about the things that happen at many celebrations and found out people who celebrate Diwali follow similar ideas. They have candles, lights, visit a temple, have a holiday, share food, listen to music, wear special clothes, let off fireworks, visit others and give presents. To welcome people to their homes, people create rangoli patterns outside their door to invite others in. We created some rangoli patterns of the lotus blossom outside school this week
