Deepawali Rangoli

Today is Indian Deepawali (festival of lights). You can read about  Deepawali and my Deepawali Table here. During this festival, traditional designs called rangolis are drawn in the house with different colored powders to welcome guests. These rangolis bring warmth and comfort of traditions during this festive season.

Happy Deepawali to all of you!
