Diwali is a celebration of light and victory over the darkness. In this victory, we gather and celebrate the holiday with candles, feasts, dance, and prayer. It’s a unity of family and friends to rejoice in peace, knowledge, goodwill, and success. From my family to yours, I wish you all a happy Diwali!
The beauty of Diwali is found in the union of community and culture. It’s within this union where we find time to recollect and process the advent of a new year. As you embrace the spirit of the holiday, take time to reflect on the triumphs experienced under the unprecedented circumstances of the past year.
