Happy Diwali! Nothing makes us shine brighter than a five-day festival full of fun, friends and fireworks.

Celebrated by Hindus, Sikhs, Jains and some Buddhists, Diwali represents new beginnings and the triumph of good over evil through a series of lights. During the festival, religious communities honour the Hindu goddess of wealth, Lakshmi.

Here at SODA, we value diversity and feel that every voice has a right to be heard no matter what you believe or where you come from! It’s not too late to celebrate… decorate your home with lanterns and Rangoli, light candles and eat plenty of masala.

The more colours the better!
