Happy Diwali!

Ten minutes left to finish this post? Challenge accepted!

So I just want to start off by saying: Happy Diwali everyone! For those of you who don't know, Diwali is the one of the most important festivals of the year for Hindus, and signifies the triumph of good over evil. My friends and I went to have a gander at the lights in Leicester, and it was really quite beautiful to be a part of. There were rows of lights and fireworks, and completely different to how our holidays such as Easter and Christmas are celebrated. It was really lovely.

In the temple you were able to get your name written on the Rangoli decorations.
Fireworks!

Would some of you agree with me when I say that I feel we don't make enough effort to celebrate our holidays as a community?

On another note, Halloween was AWESOME this year! Partially to do with the fact that I wasn't ill like last year! I've got some pictures of my two different costumes (because Halloween was over three nights just to make up for last year):




So yeah, I was a very happy bunny this year. I hope you guys also had a good Halloween, and that you actually made an effort unlike some (ahem, Connor!):



My super awesome friend Dan let him borrow his mask 'cause Dan is SUPER AWESOME.



Dan is a babe.

So- Oh goddammit, I've gone over my time limit! Oh well, it's still Diwali somewhere in the world!


Oh! And I have some really exciting news to share with you guys soon. Not yet, because I want to make sure everything is confirmed first, but I can promise you soon, and that it's really fantastic!

Welp! Next stop, Bonfire Night! Who's with me?

Keep smiling!
