Today marks the first of the five days of Diwali - Festival of Lights! the biggest festival and celebration in India. I miss being home at this time, mainly cause I have amazing fond memories of having loads of fun with my family and friends, wearing new clothes, making snacks and Indian sweets with my mom, having guests over, buying presents,bursting crackers and so much more! Today is Dhanteras, when people worship, for prosperity and wealth in their homes. Carrot Halwa is one of the Indian sweets mom would make.
