HAPPY DIWALI.

Thanks to Hazra over at Advance Booking for her post on Diwali which begins today.

Diwali, the Hindu festival of light, is the most popular of all the festivals from South Asia and is also the occasion for celebrations by Jains, Sikhs as well as Hindus.

The festival extends over five days. Because of the lights, fireworks and sweets involved, it's a great favourite with children.

How did I never notice that you quote at the top is from the Velveteen Rabbit? Has that always been there? That is my all time favorite children's book. I was obsessed. Had my own little rabbit that I carried around and everything.

You like silly jokes? Really? Prepare yourself, now.



Why couldn't Sally swing on the swing?

'Cause Sally was a carrot.


Why couldn't Sammy go for a swim?

'Cause Sammy was an onion.


Why couldn't Sally and Sammy get married?

'Cause they were made into vegetable soup!

Ha.

Thanks for the bit of bolstering you gave me -or maybe I should thank the "Blog Crap Detective" or whatever he says he is -cause without his obnoxious posts, I'd probably never have found your blog. So some good can be found in just about anything, can't it? Hey, I can use that maybe next week for my "Only The Good Friday" post -provided I remember that long to do it! I have some senility problems that invade my space from time to time it seems.
Stop back and visit anytime -you can have tea and I'll have some coffee and I can always use a friendly break!

Sounds like a lovely holiday to me!!! Any holiday that involves sweets is a winner -- plus who doesn't like lights and fireworks?

Welcome Miffie (thanks for the jokes) and Jeni. I appreciate you visiting and hope to see you both again.
