Let's Make a Difference, This Diwali
Diwali is one of the most celebrated festivals in India but each year we hear how lighting crackers is causing a lot of harm to the environment. If you want to celebrate Diwali but do not want to cause any more harm to our mother Earth then here are some tips you can use to celebrate Diwali with a difference.
- If you plan to avoid crackers this Diwali then you need to find a way to keep your children happy without them. You can talk to your neighbours and organize community competitions for kids as well as adults. This will keep everyone engaged and increase community bonding as well as save the environment.
- Another good way to celebrate Diwali is to bring a smile to people who are not so privileged. You can collect things from your community that they wish to donate like books, games, clothes; toys etc and donate them to an orphanage. Watching those kids light up with joy with the things that you don't use anymore will bring a lot of satisfaction to your life. You can also visit an old age and spend time with people who have no one to share their feelings with. You can bring food and gifts for them. They will be grateful to you for spending this important day with them.
- Each year we throw parties for our family and friends but tend to forget about the people who do not have food to survive. The best way to make a difference this Diwali is to host a lunch or a dinner party for the less privileged. They will remember this party all through their life and will thank you for the treat.
- Playing cards on Diwali is one of the most important activities that most families do. Usually, people play the same old Bluff or flash but it would be fun to learn new games this Diwali and teach it to our friends. This will keep them occupied and forget about the crackers.
- If you have bought a ton of gifts for your loved ones then you will need to wrap them as well. Being a responsible citizen you should avoid using those shiny, glitter wrapping papers which are used only ones then end up in our drains. You can wrap your gifts with plain paper and have your kids decorate them with paints. You can also use newspapers to wrap your gifts and trust us it looks good.
Thoughtfulness and personal attention make a gift box special. If you carefully consider your recipient’s style, needs, and lifestyle along with your gifting occasion, then you have everything you need to make a gift box special. Pack your box with items appropriate and the result will be cohesive and professional.
