|Goddess Lakshmi heading to my place because it's clean!|
Get cleaning, light candles, open your doors and windows to allow prosperity into your home!
Why I hear you ask?
Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth, is the main event on Diwali. It is a popular belief that the Goddess Lakshmi likes cleanliness, and she will visit the cleanest house first. This is also the reason why the broom is worshipped on this day. I didn't know this by the way, we have two brooms in the shed, will go fish them out after I've posted this live. I also don't know how you worship a broom. I'll have to ask my Mother in Law.
Lamps are lit in the evening to welcome the goddess. They are believed to light up Her path. Thankfully I cleaned our place this morning. Now I need to find some candles, I'm pretty sure we have some somewhere.
Really hope Lakshmi picks my place first! It's clean and as soon as it gets dark I'm going to cheat a little by turning on the patio lights.... well.. .....all's fair in prosperity and wealth.
Happy Diwali everyone!
