Lord Ganesha, adorned with five earthen lamps (diyas).

Entrance of the house, lit up with diyas.

Another angle.

From the front.

Festival of lights. The house is decorated with diyas and the doors and windows are left open in goddess Lakshmi's (goddess of wealth, light, wisdom, the lotus flower and fortune, and secondarily of luck ) welcome.

    I lived in an apartment complex for awhile and many of the tenants were from India. So I remember this holiday and how wonderful all the lights were around their balconies and doors. Not to mention the incredible food smells coming from their homes.

    Love the new photo on your profile.
