Shining a Light

As we build up to Guy Fawkes Night, with its bonfires and fireworks, Our Hindu residents  will, this week, celebrate Diwali.

This festival is actually spread over five days but it is the third day (4 November in 2021) that is marked with fireworks but also with traditional lights, candles and lanterns (diyas) around the home. The festival is in celebration of Laxmi, the Goddess of Prosperity.

Families and friends dress colourfully and exchange small gifts, including sweets and dried fruits. At The Chiswick Nursing Centre – our activities team are leading a range of celebrations, parties and sweet treats that will take the opportunity to celebrate both Guy Fawkes Night and Diwali.

 The Nursing Centre celebrates a wide range of cultural and festive events across the year and the opportunity to spread good cheer is always welcomed.
