Karthigai-the festival of light

 Though Deepawali is called as the festival of lights, we people in Tamil nadu celebrate it in the month of Karthigai(tamil month), it is a full moon day.  In this day we decorate our home with lamps.  

In my mother's home, we used to make big kolam(rangoli)and decorate it with lamps, it will look like kolam made of lamps. But in this apartment home I can do only this, a simple kolam...

We use to preserve some crackers for this festival...or we can say it like this... the left over deepawali crackers are finished today. It looks like mini deepawali
