26 October 2011
Today - October 26 - is Deepavali. Or, Diwali, as it's known in India. It is the Festival of Lights, and it reminds me that the holiday season has begun in Singapore (we've already had the Mid-Autumn Festival and Eid, which marks the end of Ramadan; plus, I heard Christmas music in the mall last Friday, October 21). To celebrate, Little India here has been alight with beautiful colors and decorations, and the crowds were out last Monday in preparation. Here are a few photos.
