Thala Deepavali

Deepavali or Diwali is a Hindu festival which is celebrated after the festival of Dussehra.  Deepavali is also called the festival of lights and is celebrated for 3-5 days in general.  It symbolises the victory by good over evil. The festival is widely associated with Lakshmi, goddess of prosperity, but regional traditions connect it to Rama, Vishnu, Krishna, Durga, or Kali.

Normally as followed in every time during Deepavali, we tend to get up early, soak our self in oil from head to toe and takedown oil bath. After the bath, we dress up ourselves in new clothes and worship Goddess Lakshmi. After doing the traditional pooja, we tend to enjoy ourselves by bursting crackers and join neighbours, friends and celebrate the festival together. After some time we would have a royal meal that is prepared especially for the occasion and also the lunch. You join the celebration with your family, sometimes if relatives are here you enjoy the day with a family get-together and enjoy the fun-filled day with laughter and happiness along with good festive food that is served on this special occasion.

Thala Deepavali is a special event for the newly married. By contrast, nothing is deviating from the moods and celebrations of the people who are celebrating Deepavali however, here you would have a family get-together to bring the bond between the newly wedded wife/husband and their respective families. Here the newly wedded wife helps her mother in law with household works, preparing food, helping to set up things for pooja etc. However, the households treat newly married people as a king & queen of the house. The same celebrations happen inside the house, but there would be sense joyness with the newlywed people. The festival would be celebrated by the family and their extended family bursting crackers, distributing sweets, having festive food and discussing life happenings between two families.
