Diwali In Savusavu

Diwali is the Indian Festival of Lights, that is celebrated in Fiji in October.
It is a time when the women & men dress in their most attractive outfits.
Sales persons in shops all dress up in the Indian dress, even thou they are of different races.
At nightfall all the houses put on fairy lights & candles, around the house & grounds, it is a beautiful sight to see.
It is also the time for the children & adults to set off fireworks & crackers at night, each family having their own fireworks display.
It's a busy time for the Ladies who make Indian curries, sweets & savouries for days, so that they can give it out to their friends & visitors.
