Heartiest Diwali Greetings from Anks Image! Diwali (Deepavali) is the Festival of Lights in India. It’s the Indian Christmas for most people, wonderful time to spend quality time with friends and family, eat great food, light firecrackers and enjoy a good time.
So here are some of my tips to enjoy Diwali even more..
There’s going to be lot of pollution in the air – firecrackers, diyas, and of course the daily dose of pollution from the usual suspects. So protect your skin. Remember to wash your face before bedtime. And don’t forget your moisturizer.
If you’re pulling an all-nighter partying with your friends and family, do NOT forget to take off your makeup before bedtime.
And if you’re lighting up diyas and firecrackers, remember to wear fitting clothes, not those drapey ones which fly around too much and can possibly catch the flare from diyas, candles, and firecrackers, or even your own lighting tool.
Say NO to Plastic
Gifts are HUGE during Diwali. And if you’re gifting people, remember to gift healthy. Pick up dry fruits or fresh fruits as gift packs. And remember to tell your gift wrapping person to wrap stuff in paper products, not those plastic or plastic-like materials.
Diwali is a time for parties and for some, it’s the perfect time to let loose and booze. But please don’t get carried away in the flow of celebrations!
Drink responsibly. Remember to drink a glass of water between every alcoholic beverage you consume. And NEVER drink on an empty stomach. There’s going to be lots of good food around you, so eat something, especially when you’re drinking.
Avoid those loud firecrackers that add to noise, smoke and trash all around us. Spend time with your friends and family, and forget about scaring your neighbor’s dog.
And remember to keep a trash bin near the area where you’re planning to light up firecrackers, whether in your home or community place. Make sure all trash goes in these bins – the cleaner next day will definitely bless you for your consideration!
Have a safe Diwali! And may the new year bring in more prosperity for you.
