You are invited to a labwide celebration of the Indian festival Diwali. Join us on Friday, Oct. 20, from 5:30-10 p.m. in Kuhn Barn.
Diwali, the Indian festival of lights, is one of India’s largest and most important holidays of the year. This Indian festival symbolizes the triumph of light over darkness or good over evil. Every house is decorated with candles, which depicts the inner light that protects us from spiritual darkness. It is typically celebrated by huge firework displays and sharing food.
In the spirit of Diwali and inclusiveness, let’s celebrate by learning the Dandiya dance, which is an easy-tolearn traditional folk dance (lessons provided), listen to Indian music, eat lots of Indian food, and participate in activities, including Rangoli (decorative art) and Mehendi (henna tattoos).
See you there for a fun-filled, exciting evening!!
