On the 14th of November Tanaya, who will be joining us at Little Bears in January, celebrated Diwali- the Hindu festival also known as the Festival of Lights. Diwali is the beginning of the Hindu New Year and also marks the victory of good over evil and light over darkness. To celebrate Diwali Tanaya and her family illuminated their home with lots of oil lamps called diyas as well as colourful lights.  They also enjoyed fireworks and lots of sweets too which is the best part of the celebrations for Tanaya. Now that the Diwali celebrations are over, Tanaya is looking forward to Christmas and starting nursery in the New Year.
