On Tuesday, there was a special visitor that came to talk to all of the kindergarten classes. It was Anitha Narayanasamy, Pritesh's mom. She came to teach us about the celebration of Diwali. Diwali, also known as Deepavali and the "festival of lights" is an ancient Hindu festival celebrated in the fall every year.
Anitha was very brave…speaking to three kindergarten classes at one time!
She showed us some amazing photographs and some really cool artifacts that her family actually uses when they celebrate Diwali.
If you happen to know anyone who celebrated Diwali (and we do!), be sure to wish them "Happy Diwali!"
