Feast of Diwali

Diwali, the Festival of Light, is a five day festival in India - at this time, little clay lamps, (dipa from which the name dipavali/diwali comes), are filled with oil and lit to burn through the nights to drive away evil spirits and light the way for good to triumph over evil - observance of Diwali includes the thorough cleaning of homes, the wearing of new clothes, the sharing of sweet treats, and the strengthening of our bonds with each other - this year, Diwali begins on Tuesday, November 13th here - the fourth day of Diwali is traditionally the feast day - thus, those who are interested and able, let's join together for an Indian lunch feast this Friday, the 16th, for an all-you-can-eat Indian feast at Streets of India in Encino :)
