Here at Oaklands we are a very multi-cultural home and our residents enjoyed learning all about the Diwali Festival.
Diwali is the five-day Festival of Lights, celebrated by millions of Hindus, Sikhs and Jains across the world and is held annually between mid October and mid November, with this year’s festival taking place 2-6 November. Diwali is a festival of new beginnings and the triumph of good over evil and light over darkness.
Residents enjoyed turning on the candles for Diwali on our magic table and joining in with the Diwali quiz. Coloured candles were lit in our multi-faith room to represent light and colour for Diwali.
