Last week we celebrated Diwali with my wife’s extended family. We’ve done this for a few years now. We started it as a way for our kids to learn about my wife’s cultural traditions as well as a counter to the commercialism of the American Christmas.

Happy Diwali, NIKON D5100 20141021 2670

Each of the households took turns hosting dinner and activities designed to teach about the history of Diwali.
