1) New clothes to all the maids and extra money(than what they asked for) for their Diwali cleaning. :)
2) No Crackers - only 1 box either of Anar, Phuljhadi or Chakri or a box which has a mix of all crackers so that Kaanha (my son) understands what are the different types of crackers.
3) Only homemade snacks for everyone who visits our place ! :)
4) Using castor oil in the Diyas because it's smoke helps in eliminating insects and thus purifies the environment. And since it's density is high, it keeps the wick glowing bright for long.
5) I, my husband and my son are going to go for a long drive on the morning afternoon or evening of Diwali. We will have food packets with us and we would keep distributing it where-ever we feel people need food, because if someone sleeps hungry on the eve of Diwali would our Diwali celebrations be Celebrations in real sense?
If you are interested you may join in or do it in your own way :))
This is to help my son know that Diwali means celebration which means spreading smiles
and that means sharing happiness with everyone irrespective of the fact whether you know them or not!!!
What are you teaching your kids this Deepawali?
