It doesn't matter how you spell it we have had great fun finding out about this festival of lights. We have listened to the story of Rama and Sita, made our own puppets to re-imagine the epic tale (and many many battles with Ravanna!), designed Mehndi hands, created clay diva lamps and gone super size with out outdoor rangoli patterns. It's lucky we have all this time to rest now - I can't think of anything exciting that might possibly be happening in December.....
