Having just spent the last 10 minutes setting up the candles around the house I thought I'd come on and wish you all Happy Diwali. Anyone here doing anything? I'm not doing anything today (other than the candles) but I'm goning down to London at the weekend for a family do.

I did my homework by the light of lots of candles, though I'm not Hindi. I have a swami friend with extensive plans, so I sort of celebrated vicariously.

I don't personally celebrate it in any formal way, but my local newsagent and his wife, with whom I'm quite good friends, are both Hindu so I always wish them a happy Diwali at this time of year. Usually they take a few days off so I only see them afterwards, but I think it's important to appreciate the faiths of other people. After all, they wish me a merry Chistmas in December (not that I'm Christian, but I'm a capitalist, which I think counts as the same thing these days wink.gif).

Are there actually any other Hindus on here? I say other, but I'm not really a Hindu, I just do all the festivals and prayers and stuff 'cos a lot of my family are Hindu.

I'm not, but it seems to be an interesting religion, and I have a few Hindu people in one of my classes. They seem like people I'd like to be friends with, but the teacher frowns on any sort of talking or notes and they're only in one class with me. sad.gif We sort of grimace at each other in sympathy when the teacher goes on some stupid rant about some obscure point that no one cares about, though.
I don't care for Hindu food. Italian forever. Smooth red spaghetti sauce had some sort of divine inspiration, I'm certain. biggrin.gif
