A Special Tihar

Ready for the candle race!
Ready for the candle race!

So, because this is a special holiday in Nepal, and hopefully in the next year or so we will have our beautiful daughter in our arms, we decided to have a impromptu get together to celebrate Tihar, or Diwlai as it is called in India.

It was so much fun! We had a BUNCH of friends and kids over to celebrate this fun and exciting festival tonight. We had some yummy food from our local Indian restaurant as well as good conversation, pumpkin painting for the kids, and then we finished off the night with an exciting game that I played when I was in India 10 years ago during Diwali. It’s a silly game, and very simple, but all you need to do is take a candle and have a little race, and key is NOT let the candle go out! It was a quick game since our awesome winner was REALLY fast, but it seemed that everyone had a fun and exhilarating time.

So, hopefully in a year’s time, we will be able to celebrate this festival with our beautiful little girl, and this picture of the 3 of us (below) will be a picture of 4.
