    Haven't seen any Christmas ones here yet - only Diwali ones, 'cos it's next week.

    It's Hindu, Jain and Sikh, and I've just been reading about the preparations for it in Leicester, where I think it's probably observed more in the spirit of the original (festival of light) than Christmas (ought to be festival of Christian birth, is actually gob-stuffing commercialism gone mad...)

    Sweets do feature heavily in Diwali celebrations though, mmmmmmm.

    B and I are off to Diwali celebrations with Jean when she comes up on the Saturday. Looks to be an awesome evening out. Last year was, anyway!

    Sounds fun. And non-believers are welcome? I may ask if I can tag along too...

    Didn't seem to be a problem last time. All welcome as far as I know.

    Went through Leicester about 5 years ago during Diwali, the lights were on a par with Blackpool, miles of 'em.

    :smile: Yeah! Elmer, Diwali in Leicester is great. All up Syston Road area the traffic is halted and everyone walks where they will.
    Not as commercialised as Christmas and everyone shares the celebration, rather than being stuck in their own homes with immediate family.
    Diwali over Christmas every time! And I'm European. ;):ohmy:
