Happy Diwali

Posted by

Yesterday was Diwali, the biggest festival in many parts of India. On this day, people celebrate by decorating their houses with lamps and strings of electric lights, and also burn fireworks. Here in the US I couldn't burn the fireworks, of course, but I lit the lamps and the electric lights to mark the occasion.

Thanks a lot to everyone who commented on my photos, or even stopped by for a visit. The comments have been pouring in pretty fast and I'm finding it increasingly difficult to reply to each individually. I'd rather spend that time in viewing others' photos and commenting there. But I do read each comment individually, and if you ask me something specific, I'll answer that.
