Diwali celebrations at theAsianparent office

lead image

One of the most wonderful thing about living in multicultural Singapore is the fact that we get exposed to so many various cultures and festivals and the opportunity to celebrate all of it.

Deepavali, or Diwali for short, is the festival of lights. It is the celebration of light over darkness, knowledge over ignorance, and the triumph of good over evil.

On a more social level, the festival is a time for family and friends to get together, for love, goodwill and generosity, for greetings, gifts and sweets.

So this Diwali, we decided to celebrate this festival in our office. Check out our pictures!
