  3. Have a great New Year! Your fireworks are beautiful, as are the photos in the post below. It's lovely to see such things, as I'm never likely to see them in person!

  4. I saw yesterday how the Dutch Hindus celebrated Diwali together with Christians, Jews and Moslims. It was a very cheerful party.

  5. I've loved fireworks ever since I was a child. I've recently learned it's not that easy to photograph them so I appreciate these shots. :-)

    Glad to share this message that I received from a friend on Diwali Day. In Malaysia, we tend to call it Deepavali.

    "Lights are of Love, Wisdom, Comfort & Energy. I wish you and your love ones lots of Lights on this beautiful Deepavali Day!"
