Lights…candles…Diwali! The festival of lights is coming up and I’m getting excited.
One thing I ordered this year that I’d never used in the past was LED candles. This is because last year the lights were so beautiful that my younger son wanted to take some of the candles to his room when he went to bed, but I was concerned about the potential fire hazard. This year we’ll add the LED candles to places we wouldn’t normally feel comfortable leaving an open flame, use tea lights and votives in holders in the living room/dining room/entryway, and of course use diya (ghee lamps) for our puja. I also hang white strands of lights for Diwali and then leave them up through New Year’s, so this is the beginning of the holiday light season for us (here in Ohio, as it starts getting darker and colder, it can be depressing, and holiday lights help a lot with that).
