I know that everyone is wondering about my ladoo making spree!! But it's Diwali - festival of lights and I want Gudiya to have the childhood memories of Diwali. My husband wonders why am I taking all these efforts to make ladoos and chiwdas. "If you are in Rome, do as the Romans do" - He quips.
Well, as October arrives, we always head out to our nearest apple farm to pick apples. We spend good time there drinking freshly squeezed apple cider and eating freshly made apple donuts. Then we visit the local pumpkin patch to pick the pumpkins, play in the corn maze. After arriving home, we carve, paint or decorate the pumpkin. We make every possible Halloween decorations with spooky kitties, friendly witches, and pumpkins on the window panes. Halloween generally comes hand in hand with Diwali.
