All I Want For Diwali...

...or Devali or Deepawali is Jewelry?

Or a huge action movie opening? And why would I want a gold-plated lamp if I came in for a nice bracelet?

No matter, it's a huge day in India today, Diwali. It's one of the biggest holidays of the year here. What's the celebration? It's the festival of lights, a time of celebration and huge amounts of fireworks blasting. What's behind the holiday? As usual in India, it's complicated and best left to a Wiki entry. Got it? Good. All we know is it's a loud party with family, friends, food and the exchange of lots of gifts and "popcorn movie" attending. Sound familiar? Christmas comes early for us here in India.
