Delectable Diwali with Famous Amos: The Meaning of Abundance Through Cookies!

Prosperity and Abundance:

Diwali, also known as the Festival of Lights, hails from India and is celebrated by millions, including the Hindu migrant populations that have established themselves throughout the world. This festival holds profound significance for our Hindu brothers and sisters. Much like the concept of a New Year, Diwali is a time for renewal, gratitude, and prayers for the year ahead. It symbolises the triumph of good over evil, light over darkness, and, at its core, the strength that resides in the presence of light, signifying hope.

The story of Diwali unfolds over several days, and on the third day, the deity Lakshmi is invited into homes in the evening, celebrated as the bearer of Prosperity and Abundance. During this period, Hindu devotees come together within their families, cleansing their homes, adorning them with colourful decorations, preparing offerings of fruits, with special significance given to mangoes, symbolising love and auspiciousness. They also light oil lamps as offerings for the evening prayer as a source of light.

Goddess Lakshmi bestows blessings that encompass beauty, intelligence, abundance, and, above all, wealth and prosperity. In the first week of Diwali, after the family prayers and offerings, households commence preparations for extravagant feasts, to be shared with friends and family near and far in the weeks to come.

Diwali is not only a time for reflection and devotion but also a season of splendour and abundance, where homes are adorned with brilliant decorations and vibrant colours, symbolising the festival’s essence. The significance of this celebration is best understood through the act of giving, expressing gratitude, and sharing blessings. As devotees invite Goddess Lakshmi into their homes, they open their hearts to the spirit of generosity, signifying that abundance is not merely about material wealth but about the richness of heart and soul.

The Malaysian Tradition of Open Houses:

During this time, devotees who are brimming with hope and aspirations for a fantastic year ahead, practice giving and gratitude. They start their new year by embracing the act of giving and being grateful. This spirit of sharing is exemplified by the tradition of open houses, where friends from diverse cultures and backgrounds come together to celebrate. It is a time of unity when we celebrate with our friends during this auspicious festival.

The tradition of open houses also involves the art of giving delectable treats to the hosts, strengthening bonds and spreading harmony. For hosts, it is an opportunity to showcase the warmest form of hospitality and express gratitude to those who hold significance in their lives.

transcends cultural and religious boundaries, reflecting the rich tapestry of Malaysian society. The act of giving and receiving gifts during open houses underscores the spirit of Diwali and strengthens the bonds of friendship and harmony.
