When I was looking for a brand-name for my glass I wanted something which express light and colors... It was when I first found out about Diwali. Unfortunetly the name was taken but my interest stayed to learn about this celebration. Every year around this time there is a big Diwali Festival in Balboa Park, San Diego. I would not miss it ! Diwali is one of the biggest festival of Hindus, celebrated for five continuous days, where the third days is celebrated as the main Diwali festival or 'Festival of lights'.
The celebration was amazing - enjoyed by people of every religion - it was about joy, happiness and festivity. The clothes....the music.....the dances.... just magical!
( it is intresting that some folk costume make every women like a princess - it is all about to emphasize her beauty,femininity, sexuality...till others (like in Eastern Europe) all of these hide under layers of clothes,headscarf etc...)
Food is important part of every celebration in any nation...so we had an indian dinner - to make the evening perfect!:)
"May this Diwali bring joy, health and wealth to you. May the festival of lights brighten up you and your near and dear ones lives. May the Diwali light show us the way and lead us together on the path of peace harmony WISH YOU A VERY HAPPY DIWALI!"
Eloszor akkor talalkoztam a Diwali fesztivallal, mikor nevet kerestem az uvegeimnek. Olyat szerettem volna, ami kifejezi az uveg lenyeget - feny es szinek...Sajnos, a Diwali nev mar foglalt volt, de az erdeklodes maradt. Minden oktoberben hatalmas Diwali Festival van a Balboa Parkban - nem hagytuk ki iden sem!:)
Ez az unnep, ami osszehozza a kulonbozo vallasu, hitu embereket, csaladokat, fenyrol szol -minden ertelmezesben ....Zene, tanc, a ruhak.....fantasztikus volt!:)
( Milyen mas az o nepviseletuk, ezek a ruhak hercegnove varazsolnak mindenkit, a noiseget hangsulyozzak, szepseget, szexualitast....mig masfele ( pl Kelet Europaban) sok sok reteg, fejkendo, vastag harisnya ala rejtjuk mindezt...)
