Today, many of us at MGO celebrate Diwali. Diwali, or Dipawali, is India's biggest and most important holiday of the year. The national festival gets its name from the row (avali) of clay lamps (deepa) that people light outside their homes to symbolize the inner light that protects from spiritual darkness. As a result, Diwali is often referenced to as the Festival of Lights. Diwali is five days long and represents a time where families come together to pray, exchange gifts, and feast. May everyone at MGO is blessed with peace, prosperity, happiness, good health and great success. Happy Diwali 2021!
