There is something special about Holidays that brings about the sense of togetherness and unity amongst us however diverse we might be as individuals. Be it Family Holidays, Festival Holidays or National Holidays, the word Holiday in itself emits a positive vibration and is an unbelievable mood elevator.
Yes indeed there is something very special about Holidays. Holidays gives us a chance to take a break from everyday life and spend quality time with the people we love - its a lifeline to sanity, so to speak. Not only do they let us unwind and enjoy relaxing moments with our loved ones, they also leave us with a chest full of life-long memories to cherish for as long as we are on this planet.
A simple break from our monotonous daily routine helps in building family relationships as well as improve children's behaviour and academic competence at school.
Though the Indian calendar is dotted with holidays throughout the year, the months from October - December is undoubtedly the climax. Starting from Dussehra, Diwali and ending with Christmas and New Years , these months truly form the HOLIDAY SEASON in India and most of the world too !
As we bid farewell to Navrathri and Dussehra after celebrating the nine days with traditional dances called Garba and Raas and culminating in Ayudha Pooja and Saraswati Pooja, it is time to extend a warm and hearty welcome to truly the King of Indian festivals - DIWALI - The festival of lights ! With just a week to go, the countdown to this exciting and sparkling festival has already begun !
