ASB Diwali Utsav

Warning: Cute Picture Alert - viewing the following pictures may result in excessive "aws".

Diwali (pronounced Divali) is a big holiday here in India. Shops decorate with strings of lights and advertize sales for people buying gifts for family and friends during this festival of lights. ASB has scheduled our fall break this year to coincide with the Diwali holidays, so we will have a week off.  Every year the American School hosts a Diwali celebration organized by the parents.  Nancy and I attended last night and had a great time eating some "street food" , chatting with people, listening to good music, and especially enjoying the kids in their costumes from each of the 28 states of India.

Almost like tulip time in Holland!  In addition to enjoying the kids and their costumes and dances, we also were treated to a short set by Blues No Bar - a great blues/rock band made up of several ASB teachers and some opportunity to dance to some Diwali music.
