Hi Everyone! One of the most amazing aspects of growing up in Trinidad & Tobago (Trinbago) is the diversity of our people. This diversity permeates every aspect of our society: music, language, religions, cuisine & our festivals.
The Hindu festival of Lights, called Divali, is a public holiday in Trinbago and will be celebrated this year on October 18th. Divali celebrates the victory of light over darkness, knowledge over ignorance, good over evil and hope over despair.
The story of Divali is such a universal one, regardless of one's beliefs. Let us all embrace the spirit of this festival as we wish everyone a Shubh Divali.
