I and my family celebrate Deepavali( the festival of lights) every year with joy and happiness. On Deepavali day, we have a religious oil bath ; wear new clothes, pay a visit to the temple for God's blessings; exchange sweets with relatives and eat good food prepared by my mother. We also do the pooja to Gods and Goddesses at our home. We watch special-tv programmes. In the evening, we light lamps in our pooja-room and in our terrace. We stopped playing with crackers long ago- firstly we do not encourage child-labour and secondly, it create air-pollution. We all go to my grandmother and be united with Grandma, cousins, aunts and uncles happily on this joyous festival.
