Happy Deepagiving!

We recently celebrated Deepagiving, which is a combination of Thanksgiving and Deepavali. If you think about it, they are similar. Deepavali is the Indian Festival of Lights, Thanksgiving is the Festival of Eating with Indians and Pilgrims.Peacocks, turkeys, you see the similarity.Our friend Laura made festive hats for the pilgrims,
and the Indians.
This is what Deepagiving looks like. There are flashing lights and rugby (as close to football as available), and Indian flower decorations.
