Dear Readers,

This is festive season. We will have Karva Chauth, Ahoi Ashtami, and then will come the five day long Diwali festival. Diwali is my favorite festival - I will write about Diwali and start posting the Diwali recipes soon.

This year Karwa Chauth is on Oct 8th- On this auspicious day women keep fast for the long life and well wishing of their husbands. If you want to know more about Karwa chauth please check wikipedia, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karva_Chauth

In our family, this is a tradition to make gulgule for the Karwa Chauth Pooja. Also, in our family there is a tradition to make vaishnav fod for all the festivals and fastin. So we do not use any onions and garlic in Karwa Chauth feast.....

Ahoi Ashtami falls just after 4 days of karwa Chauth. This year Ahoi Ashthami will be observed on Oct 12th. On this auspicious day women keep fast for the long life and well wishing of their kids. Diwali falls just after a week after Ahoi Ashthami.

This month's festivals are-

Karva Chauth is on Oct 8th
Ahoi Ashtami is on Oct 12th
Dhanteras is on Oct 17th
Narak Chaudas is on Oct 18th
Diwali is on Oct 19th

Happy Karwa Chauth!
