There was a time when I used to celebrate all the major festivals at home. Not necessarily because I believe in the rituals, but because I thought it was good for the kids to have a strong cultural foundation, so they could take their own decisions later on life. I would drive myself crazy putting up appropriate floral decorations, making sweets, dressing the kids in traditional wear.
Till I realized nobody really enjoyed it.
I’ve now decided not to celebrate any more festivals at home. At least I no longer wear myself out, and them scream because I am tired.
