  1. An advanced Happy Diwali, Prerna! I know how special this day is; growing up in Hong Kong and Singapore (where it was called Deepavali), it was celebrated in school every year in honor of our Indian classmates. I went to British international schools in both countries, and we always celebrated events from different countries! I remember Diwali being super colorful in school, and our Indian clubs would always have a special performance on the week of Diwali–no school, of course, on the actual day!

    I wish you and yours a most blessed season filled with love and light! Happy Diwali! :)

      Hi Martine, thank you SO much for the wishes and for sharing your own experience with Diwali. We actually celebrate all the festivals here in India, since I’m married to a Hindu, was born a Christian and practice Buddhism principles:-) Thanks once again and I hope you can one day visit India during Diwali to actually see it all first-hand.

  2. It is getting to be that time of year where I need to start watching Martha again for some great holiday fun! Thanks for reminding me :)

      Hi Wendy, yeah. I know. As soon as Octobe rolls around, I start looking around for ideas and inspiration. How have you been? What plans for the holidays?

  3. Useful set of links! I’m looking forward to trying some of the ideas in them. One thing I always do is use essential oils to add festive smells to Xmas trees, greeting cards, wrapping paper, even logs for the fire. Thanks for sharing
