Celebrate With An Indian Family
If you are an expat or foreign student staying in India. The best way to celebrate Diwali is to “be invited by an Indian Family”. While there’s plenty of evidence of Diwali on the streets, it’s indoors, amongst Indian families, that the really meaningful celebrations take place. And if you’re visiting India from abroad during Diwali, it’s highly recommended that you stay at an Indian homestay so that you can be a part of traditional Diwali family rituals and get a real insight into Indian culture.
People usually wear new ethnic clothes on Diwali, so if you’re a woman, it’s a great reason to buy yourself a sari (Indian drape) and dress up too! If you’d like to join in the gift giving, your hosts would really appreciate some sweets or chocolates.
