Expert Ideas for a Healthier Home

Deepavali or Diwali Festival has probably been one of the best well-known Hindu celebrations. They deem it as the “Festival of Lights” to raise praises for the Goddess of Wealth and Prosperity named Lakshmi.  Some also say that it celebrates the victory of good over evil. It also marks the beginning of the financial year for Hindu believers.

This year, the festival will be celebrated on the 27th of October. Sometimes celebrations may last for up to 5 days! Though the primary and largest celebrations are done in India, Hindu communities all across the globe join in the celebration. This article will show you some tips on how to prepare for the celebration.  Or if you are just interested in the festival, you will be able to learn about the preparations of our Hindu friends for Deepavali Festival.

1. Start with cleanliness

Maintaining the home’s cleanliness should be the first step! Cleaning before the Deepavali Festival serves as a “cleansing ritual.” This step should be made to make sure that the home is ready for the arrival of the Goddess Lakshmi. A clean home offers a good vibe for the high visitors in Hindu. It also helps you become more prepared should there be visitors in the house during the celebration.

 2. Fix all broken housewares

Next with cleaning is the repair. It has been a long practice for Deepavali Festival to have all house things work in perfect conditions. If you have damaged appliances, have them repaired. Some even steps up their preparation by having their homes renovated! They say that an-all working home systems make sure that the house will be having good harmony throughout the year!

3. Decorate the house with lights

Since the festivity is called the “Festival of Lights,” one staple of the preparation is decorating the house with lights. Another decoration that should be in the house is the traditional Rangoli design. These two things should always be done and added as a decoration for the house. As much as possible the decorations should be colorful and festive! All the lights in the house should be lit up! Never leave a broken light system. Should there be any broken light, have it checked and have it repaired! Some even light up candles and lamps inside and out of the house!

4. Prepare for a festive meal

Meals during celebrations keep people bonded. Good food keeps people intact while sharing stories that they have. Sweets, snacks, and savories land the top spot on food choices during Deepavali Festival. Some even prepare these foods not only for consumption but also as a gift to friends and visitors. They also say that this celebration should be a “no meat” celebration. Choose to cook vegetarian meals to be shared with everyone! Since sweets are the main foods to be prepared during the Deepavali Celebration, your oven should work at its best! If there are problems, you contact an oven repair expert immediately for a hassle-free cooking.

5. Prepare for Lakshmi Pooja

During Deepavali, a religious ritual called Lakshmi Pooja should be done. This ritual seeks divine blessings from the Goddess Lakshmi. She is the Goddess of Wealth who they believe to guide her followers towards more blessings and prosperity. During the ritual, you have to recite mantras. You also have to give an offering to the Goddess in the form of dried fruits and money.

6. Shop for new clothes

To mark the start of a prosperous year, shopping for new clothes is a great way to celebrate. Apart from rejoicing the past year’s blessings, it also marks another prosperous start of a new year. A brand new outfit also makes you presentable when the Goddess Lakshmi arrives at your house!

Though there are so many ways to prepare for the Deepavali Festivals, following these steps will surely help you a lot! Preparations are never easy, but at least good to keep you up with the things you need to do! A great celebration starts with a well-done preparation. Apart from celebrating festivities, it could also be a great way to bond with family, friends and with the whole Hindu community!
