Happy Divali & Bonfire Night!



Hello wonderful readers :D
Happy Divali and Bonfire Night!
(2 different festivals, they're on the same day this year :P)
I've just been checking on Stardoll,
and I can't really see anything to do with the festivals,
So that's a shame :S

For those of you who don't know,
I'll explain a bit about them for you here :D


1. Bonfire/Guy Fawkes Night  
It is traditionally celebrated in the United Kingdom,
but over the years, many other countries began to celebrate it aswell.
It's in 'memory' i guess of a man named Guy Fawkes who tried to blow up the English Parliment (AKA, the 'Gunpowder Plot')
back on the 5th November 16O5.
People often burn dummies made of cardboard or something that represent Guy Fawkes,
And most people also do fireworks displays :D
 

2. Divali /Deepavali
Divali is an Indian festival and it is the Festival of Lights. It is celebrated in Hindiusm, Sikhism (me :L) & Jainism.
People often light many lamps and candles (i just got back from lighting quite a few at the Gurdwara, and we currently have loads around the house ;D) and we eat loads of sweets and wear new clothes etc.
We also light fireworks and stuff on Divali aswell(:

Not really to do with stardoll,
But I just thought this trivial post might interest you ^^

Leave me your thoughts/opinions on anything to do with this post in comments :D

I don't agree with celebrating this on stardoll or else every country & every nationality would want every little thing celebrated. The divali celebration sounds cool like an indian theme & items in starplaza. But how many members who live in india are on stardoll? I think stardoll uses statistics & representation. I live in the UK & guy fawkes is not a major celebration it's just fireworks. And I think stardoll.tom already represents asian festivities. A bollywood theme would be good I love the outfits & jewellery.

"But how many members who live in India are on stardoll? " Honey, you would be surprised. Stardoll has 80M members, where do you think most of them are from? Try India, China and Japan...just to mention those with the highest population rate. And btw, not long ago we had the month of Ramadan celebration, tell me how many Islamic members do you think Stardoll has?
Moving to post subject. One of the things I'm most attracted by in India are the beautiful festivities they have during the year, Diwali being one of my favorites. So wish I was there this time of year...Has for Bonfire Night, I had heard of it before but never really knew it was related to Guy Fawkes.
Since these two festivities all have in common fireworks, you are all invited to come to Portugal cuz no one makes fireworks better than us...well, maybe the Chinese, maybe...I still need proof on that :D

Happy diwali & bonfire night!!! I am from India & its one of the most important festival. Its really sad that they havent launched something related to these festivals, even bonfire night! It would have been interesting & I am sure they could have atleast put up some crackers & diyas on the suite shop.

But I truly enjoyed the day. We had sweets, burnt crackers, worshiped & wore a traditional emerald green dress! :)

Some visuals of diwali decorations of my city:
