Subject:  bursting crackers is fun
I would like to answer the third question directly. The most I like about Diwali is bursting crackers. It is so much fun. I am busting crackers since I was a kid. Today I am a college going teenager but still the child inside me comes out during Diwali when it is time to burst crackers. I also like to watch large fireworks. My favorite cracker is sky rockets. But sky rocket has to be handled with care as it can be harmful is not placed at right place before igniting it. When I was a kid, I used to carry a bag full of crackers with me. We all friends used to gather in out building premise and used to share each other’s crackers. Diwali is close to my heart as it brings joys and helps us to forget all our sorrows.

Subject:  I like sending greeting cards
I celebrate Diwali by lighting diyas and drawing colourful designs of rangoli. When I was small I used to do abhyang snan but now days no one in my family actually takes the ritual bath. It is truly said that Diwali is the celebration of lights. We get time to spend with our family. Now days no one gets time to send Diwali greeting to their relatives who are staying far away or even to those who are staying near by. When I was small, my dad used to send greeting cards to all our relatives and acquaintances to wish them happy Diwali and prosperous New Year. The way people celebrate Diwali has changed over the years. Now people send e-cards instead of printed ones. Sending greetings is what I like the most about Diwali.

Subject:  time to eat sweets
During Diwali my mom makes lots of sweets and that is why Diwali is like a big feast. I enjoy food stuffs like chakalis, laddoos, and karanjis. Everyone waits for the first day of Diwali in my family. On the first day of Diwali I get up at 4 o’clock and apply oil with fragrance to my body. When I go to bath I massage my body with the scrub that my mom buys from vendor who sells rangoli colours, diyas, and glitters. I use special soap, most of the time mysore sandal or moti for bath. After having bath I wear my new dress and bust a few crackers. Firework signifies the end of the bad powers. Then I eat sweets along with my family. I go to temple with my friends. After coming home I wish my relatives on the phone and also wish my neighbors.
