Let there be light! It’s time for Diwali, the Festival of Lights. This Hindu festival celebrates the triumph of light over darkness, or enlightenment over ignorance. What special holidays are you looking forward to?
Today is the start of Dia de los Muertos, the Day of the Dead Festival. Families honor their passed relatives with a huge, colorful celebration that, in Guatemala, culminates in the Festival of Giant Kites. (our favorite part for obvious reasons).
It’s a magical time of year: the temperature cools, the leaves begin to fall… and the beer starts flowing. Almost time for Oktoberfest! Head to the festival in Munich and celebrate with plenty of beer and brats.
