Happy Diwali: Festival of Lights

On Sunday, November 12, people worldwide will celebrate Diwali, the festival of lights.

Diwali originated in ancient India as a celebration of the return of Lord Rama to his kingdom after defeating the demon King Ravana. The holiday has different meanings and traditions for each religion and region of India and is celebrated by people in many other parts of the world, including Nepal, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Singapore, and Fiji.

Diwali celebrates the victory of good over evil, light over darkness, and knowledge over ignorance. Universally, it brings joy and happiness to millions, and festivals include colorful lights, music, dancing, and fireworks. Happy Diwali to all those who celebrate!

¡Celebremos la Independencia de México!

September 16 is Mexico’s Independence Day!

On September 16, 1810, Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla, a Catholic priest, rang the church bell in Dolores, Mexico, and gave a passionate speech that called for independence from Spain. This event became known as the Grito de Dolores (Cry of Dolores)—the start of Mexico’s 11-year war for independence.

Each year on the night of September 15, it is tradition for Mexico’s president to kick off Independence Day celebrations by ringing the same bell Hidalgo did in 1810 and giving a speech from the National Palace in Mexico City. Independence Day is also celebrated with food, fireworks, parades, and music.

¡A todos los que están celebrando, L&P les desea unas felices fiestas!

To all who are celebrating, L&P wishes you a happy holiday!
