Divali Activities in my Classroom

Tomorrow will be a holiday here in Trinidad and Tobago. It’s called Divali (pronounced diwali) or Deepavali. It’s the Hindu festival of light. The festival spiritually signifies the victory of light over darkness, knowledge over ignorance, good over evil, and hope over despair. Tomorrow night many streets and homes will be adorned with tiny lit earthen pots called deyas. It’s such a beautiful sight to behold and the Indian food is the part I look forward to the most. I’m just sharing a few pictures of Divali displays and activities that my class has done.
