Greetings to all of you as well.

And down south, we call it Deepavali, not Diwali

Any excuse to light fireworks sounds like a good idea to me. You think the cops 'll let me go if I explain to them it's just part of my Diwali celebration? Works on the Fourth of July anyway. Maybe I should try greeting them with a "happy diwali-day" as they get out of their cruisers...

Known as the "Festival of Lights," it symbolises the victory of good over evil, and lamps are lit as a sign of celebration and hope for mankind
A worthy cause for celebration.

Here's to a world where our differences are honored, not feared.

Cheers.

LOL our diwali lights (in leicester UK) have been up for ages, then after diwali they change all the diva signs to xmas trees! (we are very multicultuaral here)

we have too many fireworks at this time of year though...

first diwali, then nov 5th*, also Eid-al-Futr xmas, new year then chinease new year in FEB, all the dogs and cats are shell shocked by feb!

* for those of you who live in the USA nov 5th is our traditional celebration when we light bonfires and fireworks!
