Happy Diwali to all my fellow desis’ or just the people celebrating in general.
So my Diwali started at 8 am. We went to drop of my dad for his flight to USA which was at 2.
But see, the airport was 2 hours away and we wanted to go to the Mandir before dad’s flight. And, he had to be at the airport at 12.
So we got there at 10:20, stayed there until 11:30, went to Subway and then the airport.
At the Mandir something confused me. On the door of the Prayer Hall it said no use of cellphones allowed. But inside the Pandit (priest) was talking loudly on his cellphone as he gave the prasad to everyone. For like straight 5 minutes he kept talking.
But whatever, we went to Subway and my dad got Chicken Salad.
After dropping him off we went to the mall, where I returned my shoes that my brother had rejected and got new ones in exchange. They’re gorgeous.
Then we just window shopped and bought some stuff at Dollar Store.
Of course, you can’t have Diwali without sweets and desserts. So we bought some fire sparklers to burn and a LOT of sweets. We went to a Diwali buffet which was delicious.
My mom bought some Samosas from a Samosa Factory for my brother’s multicultural fair. Like 60 mini samosas.
So that’s all of my Diwali. It hasn’t ended yet, it’s 7 something.
