Karwa Chauth, Diwali, Eid-al-Adha Gift Shipping

Hey is that English?  Don't worry if those words are unfamiliar to you, I'll tell you about them!  Karwa Chauth, Diwali, Eid-al-Adha are Hindu and Muslim holidays coming up.

Karwa Chauth (October 26)
The Hindu custom of celebrating your god-sister and celebrating a good marriage.
Gifts of glass bangles, henna, and sweets are given to friends, sisters, daughter-in-laws, and wives.

Diwali (November 5)
The Hindu Festival of Lights celebrating the triumph of good over evil.
Glass bangles as gifts or to get for yourself are custom on this holiday.  Think of this as a giant New Year's Eve party!

Eid-al-Adha (November 16)
The Islamic Festival of Sacrifice, a day to give thanks for all that you have and share with those who do not.
This is a day for charity and spending time with friends and family.  It is custom to wear new clothes and bangles, and to have henna on your hands.

These holidays are closely followed by Jewish and Christian holidays, Hanukkah and Christmas in December.

'Tis the season for giving!
