About this Event

You're invited!

Please join us for a Diwali Celebration on November 21st!

Diwali is the five-day festival of lights, celebrated by millions of Hindus, Sikhs and Jains across the world. The festival, which coincides with the Hindu New Year, celebrates new beginnings and the triumph of good over evil and light over darkness. During the celebration, a variety of food and drinks is shared among family and friends. Sweets (Mithai) are the most common types of foods eaten, such as balushahi, laddoos and barfis. Many of the treats are fried foods made from sugar, chickpea flour and condensed milk. Other savory foods such as,Samosas, Chivda, Lapsi Halwa and Aloo Tikki are eaten as well. This rich food is commonly enjoyed with fresh fruit and herb concoctions called "Sharbat". Sweet milk drinks such as "badam" and "thandi" are enjoyed as well. We hope that you will join us to celebrate this wonderful occasion with your GlobalAustin family!

The celebration will take place on Thursday, November 21st, at 5:30PM at the home of Aditi Joshi. Please RSVP at your earliest convenience. Address will be released with confirmed RSVP, 24 hours prior to the celebration.
