Diwali, the Festival of Lights, is just around the corner, and our homes are not just clean but infused with the aroma of mouth-watering sweets and snacks. We're adorned in new clothes, our plans with friends are set, and we're armed with a cache of 'Happy Diwali’s' for every familiar face we encounter. Yet, this year, let's infuse our celebrations with a touch of purpose.
This vibrant festival is more than just lighting lamps; it's a time of joy, reflection, and celebrating the triumph of light over darkness and good over evil. Beyond the festivities, Diwali calls for spreading the light of hope and happiness to those in need. And there are numerous non-traditional ways to do just that!
This year, let's embark on a journey to make our Diwali celebrations more meaningful by embracing the true essence of the festival. Here are 31 unique ways to celebrate Diwali with a spirit of generosity, giving, and selflessness - most of which cost nothing but a piece of your kindness.
These ways, as non-traditional, are an extension of the true essence of Diwali. As millions of us prepare to celebrate Diwali 2023, let's remember that each culture has its own beautiful way of doing so. As India illuminates with bright lights, let's be a bit kinder, more giving, and a little more selfless this year.
