Diwali

Diwali is the Hindu "festival of lights" which celebrates the New Year.

The festival of lights is held in honour of Lakshmi, the Hindu goddess of wealth and prosperity. Hindus pray to Lakshmi to bring them good luck in the coming year.

For Deepavali, I wrapped some small gift
for display at my husband's shop.

Firstly, I wrapped this kind.
It contains jellies, pudding, wafer and choclairs.


Next, I did this simple gift.
Just Cadbury chocolates and Yochelle chocolates.


This is also full of chocolates.


This has a combination of a bottle drink,
chocolates n pistachios.


They were all wrapped using the hamper wrapping style. You can refer to my post on Selamat Hari Raya last month.

Hindus decorate their homes and temples by drawing patterns on the ground outside. They draw the designs with a mixture of rice flour and water. Coloured powder, such as sand, is sometimes used.

Wishing all Hindus

Happy Deepavali..
