Hey everyone..๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€

Happy Diwali!!!
Today is the night before diwali, before Kali Puja Bengalis light 14 lamps or diyas at home..

Some believe the 14 lamps ward off evil spirits..๐Ÿ’ซ

To overcome the negative energy 14 diyas “earthen lamps” are placed all around the house at the juncture of dusk and night..๐ŸŒ™
This custom is refered to as Choddo Prodeep (14 diyas) where “Choddo” indicates fourteen and “Prodeep” indicates diyas..โœจ

Now since I am married to a Bengali I follow these traditions..
Being a South Indian I love to light lamps for three days including diwali day, so here I am with the Diyas..๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ˜

And My diya..Rhea..

Happy Diwali again everyone..๐Ÿ’ฅ
