The Complete Checklist For Diwali Celebration

Browse the latest bouquets in our collection below

The times of celebration are inching closer once more and we can’t hide our excitement. Diwali, also called the ‘Celebration of Lights’ is going to be here soon – starting from October 23, 2022, to be precise.

Diwali is known for the decoration of houses with wonderful diyas, lights and rangolis, and dressing ourselves up in beautiful outfits for the occasion. It could easily be considered the greatest festival of the year for anyone with a sweet tooth because of its delicious sweetmeats, snacks and sumptuous feasts. In any case, before you dive headfirst into the celebrations, check out this fundamental checklist for Diwali festivities that will assist you with making this year’s Diwali the best.

What Preparations Are Necessary For Diwali?

  • Shop For Your Outfit And The Kids

Nobody will want to be found in last year’s clothes? Isn’t that so? Now is the best time to go out to shop for a spic and span outfit to wear.

  • Clean And Decorate Your Home

Cleaning and tidying the home is a Diwali custom. Brighten it with however much colour and lights as could reasonably be expected. Bells, flyers, interior decorations and lights are useful in creating a cheerful atmosphere for Diwali celebrations.

  • Prepare Your Gifts

The connection between siblings is vital in Hindu culture. During Diwali, getting your brothers and sisters gifts or cooking a meal is a good idea. So when you go out to shop, remember to purchase something uniquely amazing for your family! You can also send gifts to your business partners and work colleagues as a Diwali tradition!

  • Prepare Food For Your Guests

Making desserts, snacks and savouries as refreshments and gifts is a Diwali custom. Remember, you’ll need to get ready to go vegan as well, as this is not a period to eat meat. So get ready to get your chef-y side on and make some delectable treats for your guests/family.

How Can Diwali Be Celebrated?

  • Put On Your Outfit

From stunning specially crafted sarees to readymade Indian apparels, there are many places where you can get the perfect outfit in Hong Kong. Call to know the kinds of Diwali outfits available ahead of time before visiting. There are also many shops that sell Diwali dresses for kids.

  • Where To Pray?

Praying and making supplications are very important during Diwali. In Hong Kong, there are several temples you can go to for supplications. Some temples you could go to include the ISKON Hong Kong, Kowloon Hindu Temple, Sathya Sai Baba Centre of Hong Kong and the Hindu Temple.

  • Join A Diwali Event

Most families will celebrate with their family members and friends. You can join a Diwali event hosted by your relative especially if you get invited. But also, if you’re looking to celebrate Diwali in Hong Kong outside your house, there are a lot of fun public occasions in Hong Kong where you can go with your family.

  • Get Creative With The Kids

Get imaginative! There are a lot of kids’ Diwali decoration activity ideas out there, especially on the internet e.g Pinterest. From Diwali cards to making your own drifting candles to rangoli demonstrations, children will always enjoy decorating the home.

  • Share Diwali Treats With Your Loved Ones

Kids totally love the treats and snacks side of Diwali, but guess what – they’re not the only ones! Some of the top choices are Indian sweets (no Diwali celebration would be complete without these), chocolate barfi, gujiya, carrot halwa, laddoos, mithai and so on – the list is endless. Diwali is an opportunity to celebrate sweetness over healthy eating for once – don’t waste it.

Useful Tips For Organizing A Diwali Event

  • Plan the menu first. Think about dietary limitations, sensitivities and obviously what you figure your visitors will prefer and love.
  • Purchase reusable things. This is a good idea because it is not only better for the climate but you’ll realize they will be very useful if you organize another Diwali party next time.
  • Prepare as much as you can. This helps you to avoid most mistakes and it also prevents you from running around when you should actually be enjoying your party – which is what happens most times.
  • Plan Your Spending. In all honesty, this step is critical to guarantee you have no regrets after the event. Set a strong financial plan and budget exactly what you need – not a penny more – for every fundamental piece of your Diwali festivity: food, drinks, enrichments and so on. Stick to it throughout and be resourceful.

Happy Diwali Everybody!
