Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 243 – Bandi Chor Divas and Diwali

img_00411

It’s Diwali today, Peeps! And also Bandi Chor Diwas, the festival we Sikhs celebrate today.

Most folks know about the simple Diwali story of Ram, Sita and Ravan the demon, and them defeating evil and coming back from many years in the darkness.

But this is not why us Sikhs celebrate.

I hope this little graphic gives you a little insight as to why your turbanned neighbour may be celebrating today!

With that bit of education, Spidey and I shall leave you today, to prepare for celebrations, and we will be back next week!

If you are celebrating, Diwali or Bandi Chor Divas, we wish you a wonderful day filled with love, light and laughter.
