Well, it doesn't exactly feel like Diwali right now. I'd blame it on my whereabouts you see. I've not been taking too kindly with the way Indians celebrate Diwali in the US, but I could crib and complain all my way to Jersey Downtown and no one would bother.
Thats life you see. Sigh.

I'm kidding, I'm not really as miserable as I sound. This place is..n-n-n-ice.
(Fine I admit it!)

But for what its worth, Happy Deepavali O Confounded-Souls! Burst them all and...drink lots of water.

Whoa! :) No frenzy there? Then you'll get it during the last 5 days then..with interest ;)
Remember, when in fear and tensed, drink lemon juice with sugar and salt. It cools you down. This would be applicable to family too, they ll go wild before a wedding ;)

I'll give you more words of wisdomous words, if you want sweetie! :D

Its cold in Atlanta? :O I thought that those places are Madras like. :O

Heidiho neighbor, don't know where in Jersey you are, but Newark Avenue in Jersey City should give you a passable impersonation of the festivities from back home. Happy Diwali.

The only thing u can do in US for diwali is temple/cultural shows.

it was ur first diwali after marriage - how was it?
btw u live near bridge water temple by anychance ?
