Season's Greetings!

*Clears throat importantly; Muzak starts*

E Vestigio wishes all its readers a very happy Diwolly and New Year!

Diwali

*Muzak ends!*

Now that I have that out my campy, cheesy way, allow me to wish you and yours a very, very happy Diwali! I hope you have a wonderful holiday surrounded by those you love.

It's been a lovely start to the festive season. I've giggled madly through Diwali pooja and been chided for being a chocoglutton - as if there were such a thing! I've shared chocolates with colleagues and realised that they really are a good bunch.

I've also incited rebellion - bunking work on Monday - with a number of them! *evil laugh*

I've begun making preparations for 25 of my relations descending upon us for dinner. In a very peverse way, I am enjoying the thought of cooking - but just not for them. Pray for me and my sanity on Monday, won't you?

Pièce de résistance? I'm going to watch Don and the firecrackers at Marine Drive as well. How else does one enjoy Diwali with a five day weekend? Seems, I think, a good way to start the New Year, eh? :-)

Well then, Saal Mubarak, my dears. May the year ahead be full of every benediction that you deserve and, more importantly, desire.

Don planned over here too. No crackers here :-( Apparently, you can burst them only on the 4th of July. Go figure. Oh, and btw, Happy Diwali and saal mubaarak :-)

@Parth: Pls to share review of Don. Am quite curious about what you thought of it. :)

@Casa: Anytime, my dear. :) I hope you had a good day yesterday!

@Isis: No gambling but loads of good food and a desperate longing for sheet korma that I'm going to miss the fifth year in a row!

@Lakesidey: Wishing you the same. Thanks, my dear. Am trying to be as regular as possible. :)

@Geets: And the same to you, my sweet!
