Happy Diwali!

Diwali starts tomorrow, and the SHE team wants to wish all our readers a very happy Diwali. Diwali, or Deepavali as some may know it, is popularly referred to as “the festival of lights,” and is a five-day festival which celebrates the victory of Good over Evil and Light over Darkness. It is one of the most important religious festivals for Hindus all over the world, and is an official holiday in many parts of Asia. Diwali is traditionally celebrated in a familial setting and, apart from lighting clay lamps to celebrate the festival, involves wearing new clothes and partaking of delicious sweets and snacks! Henna is also often involved.     For those of you hoping for a bigger celebration, here's one event later this week that you could check out!
