1.    Go shopping and buy new clothes

What better way to prepare for Deepavali other than shopping? Take this chance and have some fun doing traditional dress shopping with your Indian friends! Normal traditional dress for Indian women is Sari and Kurta for men.

Not a fan of Sari? No problem as Kurtas can also be worn by women too, however, the type of Kurta is different with men and it's known as Salwar-kurta where the top matches the pants/ legging.

2.    Henna Painting

Looking for a simpler and more affordable way to celebrate? We suggest you get your Henna done! In the Indian language, Henna is also known as Mehendi. It's popular among women and little girls as a sign of beautification. Henna is not only famous among brides, it has also become a popular trend during festive seasons especially Deepavali.
