WeFood October 22nd, 2022 – Diwali
October 22, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
What is Diwali? Diwali, also known as Divali or Deepawali, is a major festival celebrated over five days in many parts of India, Fiji, Guyana, India, Malaysia, Mauritius, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Suriname, and Trinidad and Tobago. Diwali has ties to multiple religious stories across several faiths so the meanings that people associate with Diwali may vary. Hindus, Jains, Sikhs, and some Muslims and Buddhists participate in the celebration. In broad terms, it often represents the triumph of light over darkness.
What to wear? As always, WeFood will be at the ‘Bago Shack, so please dress for the weather! Some of us will honor Diwali by wearing kurtas or saris for the celebration. Brightly colored clothes are encouraged!
What should I bring? Please bring your favorite beverage for the celebration. There will be a dessert table if you would like to bring a dessert/sweets as a way to wish love and light to the guests.
Where do I order a meal? Place your order HERE by Thursday, Oct.20th! We kindly accept a donation of $15/plate.
WISHING YOU A BRIGHT AND JOYOUS DIWALI!
