I had planned on doing decorating for this, but since I didn’t even know it was happening last year until it was almost over, here’s to actually celebrating! So far, it’s been simple – a place of honor for Lakshmi, Saraswati, and most importantly, Durga, plus lovely fruit and lots of flowers. This morning was quiet; I’ll be a little more focused this evening, hopefully. I am unexpectedly quite busy this week and next, so I have a feeling that the whole nine days will be very quiet in my house. I’m going to do what I can (but not beat myself up about it). One of these days, when I’m better prepared, I’ll hopefully be able to attend Dusshera, which I’ve only ever observed in films (but which I know is celebrated by several local temples, complete with Ravana effigy-burning).
Interestingly enough, the Huffington Post posted an article about Navratri:
More interesting photos!
How are you celebrating, if you plan doing that this year?
