Diwali is the biggest festival of India that marks the victory of good over evil. Diwali is all about spreading happiness and light into the lives of other people. But it seems that this year Diwali celebrations wouldn’t be usual. It is no surprise that pandemic has changed the way we celebrate festivals and special occasions. With social distancing restrictions, you may not be able to celebrate Diwali traditionally. But you shouldn’t let the pandemic take your festive spirit away.
This year, celebrate Deepawali Apni Si. Whether you are near or far away from your loved ones, celebrate your kind of Diwali. While everyone will have their own way of celebrating Diwali, the purpose is to have fun and do things that make you happy.
This Diwali, learn something special
You can try and learn something new this Diwali, be it painting, dancing, decorating home, cooking or baking something delicious. Anything that you wanted to learn for a long time.
Feed stray dogs
Shout out to all the animal lovers out there! Burn no crackers this Diwali so that cute dogs don’t get scared. Ensure stray dogs are safe in the vicinity or take them to a vet if needed.
Indulge in charity
The pandemic has affected everyone’s lives in some way or another. But there are a few whose loss is bigger than ours. Share love and joy this Diwali with those needy ones. Distribute sweets boxes among them and wish them a joyous Diwali so that they can also celebrate the festival in their little ways.
Connect with an old friend
Festivals are the time to look forward to meeting your loved ones and old friends who you haven’t seen in years. Surprise an old friend with a video call this Diwali. Make it truly memorable for them.
Send Gifts Online
You may not go and meet your relatives this Diwali, but you can still share the love and warm wishes with them through online gifts. The gesture of gifting will lessen the physical distances and bring your hearts closer.
Help your mom
This Diwali, help your mom when she is busy in the kitchen, making your favourite sweets or cuisines. Make memories, along with the food that you can treasure forever.
Take that much-needed rest
If you’re not in a mood for doing anything at all, take that much-needed rest from chores or office work. Pamper yourself. Watch movies at home with family members and make the most of time in your hand.
Pandemic has taught us not to take anything for granted. Make the most of this Diwali by celebrating in your way.
