Also known as the festival of lights, Diwali is an ancient festival celebrated every fall. Diwali is the biggest and brightest festival in India featuring lights, home decorations, shopping, fireworks, prayers, gifts and food. The festival spiritually signifies the victory of light over darkness, knowledge over ignorance, good over evil, and hope over despair - overall not a bad message to convey given the times we live in. Diwali is an official holiday in countries around the world, including Nepal, India, Sri Lanka, Mauritius, Guyana, Trinidad and Tobago, Suriname, Malaysia, Singapore and Fiji. Pinnacol has hosted dancers from many regions of the world and you can't help but feel better after watching these events. A special THANK YOU! to the members of our Diversity Task Force for arranging today's Diwali celebration. I can't wait for what they will have next time!
