Diwali Celebration

Festive Colorful Rangoli

We love celebrating Diwali at work. Everyone enjoys helping decorate with colors and lights. We add a photo booth (a cubicle wall covered with bright silk Saris and garlands. Someone makes flavored water with oranges, limes, and cucumbers. We learn how to make Diyas, small clay oil cups, which is so much fun and relaxing.

“Rangoli is an art form, originating in the Indian subcontinent, in which patterns are created on the floor or the ground using materials such as colored rice, dry flour, colored sand or flower petals. It is usually made during Diwali or Tihar, Onam, Pongal and other Hindu festivals in the Indian subcontinent.”

This year we had a Fashion Show for those dressed in traditional Indian dress. It isn’t required, and it is fun to get together and dress up.

We had a catered lunch, everyone paid for their lunch, so we had to organize this ahead and track all the expenses. That is a little nerve-wracking but it is really worth the effort for a large group to have a meal together, celebrate new friends and old, and talk about families, food, and fun.
