@Huge, thank you! O:)
@Sana, haha thanks. :')
@GlimmeringSky16, no that's okay haha, it's nice to know people are interested to know what Diwali is. :D Diwali is an Indian festival, usually celebrated in the near ending of October, or the starting of November. This year, the main Diwali is tomorrow.
It is kind of like the 4th of July, but the reason isn't the same at all. You guys celebrate 4th of July because you achieved independence on that day, but we celebrate it because (in short), one of our Gods came back to his kingdom after 14 years of living in the forest, and also after killing Ravan,..an evil devil. When he came back, it was a new moon, a moonless night, so in order to light his path, people lit diyas (you pour oil into them and light them) in order to light his path. Therefore, on Diwali, which literally means the 'festival of lights', people light the whole place, and eventually started bursting firecrackers. It initially started off with diyas, and I want us to continue that.
And considering fireworks, 4th of July is okay, as most people gather in large groups and see fireworks being set off, but here in India, every house practically does it, and it goes on the whole evening, that is, around 6 or 6: 30 pm till 12, 1 or even 2 AM. There are lots and lots of different crackers, not only the ones which set off and burst in the sky, and we burst them all. :3
Not thousands of dollars, thousands of rupees, haha. Each house spends a lot of money on them.

(OK promise that this is first person from now on. Sorry but I messed up since I have 2 rps going on)
I ran back to my camp bed and took out my iPhone and charger. It was already charged quite a bit but I hooked it up to an outlet anyway. While it was charging, I had a lollipop from my jar and stared out of the window at the pouring rain.
