7 Tips to Celebrate Diwali with Your Family
The most awaited festival is just around the corner. The families are all excited, and enthusiasm is at its peak. As the shopping bags are full and delicacies are ready to relish our taste buds, we just can’t wait to celebrate the ‘D’ day. Diwali is all about family reunions and happy family time. Let’s take you through the light-hearted journey and give you tips on celebrating the festival with your family.
People wait with bated breath to spend this special day with their loved ones. It begins with the process of decorating the entire house, from deciding which colour to buy to deciding which Diya to place where. It is all about family. When you are unable to decide and there is a disagreement, you can always start a poll on Kintree and decide the family's favourite to avoid the clash. It is exciting to involve your family and friends in the decoration process. Make it a fun and collaborative activity this Diwali.
Rituals are an essential part of this festival. To preserve and understand these traditions, it's important to have conversations with your family. Gather your loved ones for a puja (prayer) and light diyas or candles to seek blessings for a prosperous year ahead. However, if you are unable to meet and greet them this year, you can connect with your extended family on chat and ask them to post their knowledge about traditions in the foreroom. This could be a great way to interact with your loved ones. Posting the essentials in the foreroom will be a better opportunity for everyone in the family to learn more about their ancestral traditions. This sacred activity can create a deep sense of togetherness.
The main attractions of this festival are gifts. The shopping marts are filled with enthusiasm and excitement, with people buying gifts for their loved ones. You must have received such gifts from your family, which are lost in the pace of a fast-growing world. This time is to connect with them, build your family tree on Kintree and connect with your extended family. Surprise them this year by planning a gift exchange with them. Personalize your gifts to make them more special.
Cook and Share Special Meals
Cooking traditional Diwali dishes like sweets, snacks, and festive dishes can be a memorable experience. Get everyone involved in the kitchen, share family recipes, and enjoy the delicious food together. If you are worried about how to manage your family in a short span, it is super easy. Plan your Diwali event on Kintree and invite all your extended family members. Also as mentioned above you can decide the delicacy for the day by conducting a poll. Make this Diwali memorable for your extended family.
Create a Diwali Playlist
Curate a playlist of traditional and modern Diwali songs. Music can set the mood for celebration and dancing, and you can play it during your Diwali gatherings. Create a family-friendly playlist, make sure to consider the favourites of kids and ensure you have added the best of all for adults. Diwali parties are all about families including members of every age group. Make sure to include everyone in the celebration by taking everyone's preferences into account, ensuring a happy Diwali party.
Visit Relatives and Friends
Diwali is an excellent time to reconnect with extended family and friends. Plan visits to their homes or invite them to yours for a festive get-together. Get-togethers are fun until they are arranged wisely. So, be wise this year and use Kintree to the fullest to celebrate with the grandeur.
Family Photo Session
Arrange for a family photo session in your traditional Diwali attire. These photos can become precious keepsakes. Remember that Diwali is not just about the festivities but also about the bonds you share with your loved ones. The most cherished memories often revolve around the love, laughter, and togetherness you experience during this beautiful festival.
