CELEBRATE AT TANDOORI KINGDOM THIS WEEKEND WITH GREAT FOOD!
Celebrate! Celebrate! This weekend in Barrie, Tandoori Kingdom invites you to celebrate Diwali with them. Diwali is the Indian Festival of Lights, this year falling on November 15th. Tradition tells us that Diwali is observed on the 15th day of Kartik – the holiest month of the Hindu religion. The word Diwali means “rows of lighted lamps” in Sanskrit.
Diwali is actually a five day Hindu originated celebration that signifies the victory of good over evil. It has become a huge celebration regardless of faith. Celebrating normally with new clothing, fireworks, candles and the exchange of small gifts and sweets – this year Diwali celebrations are necessarily smaller. The staff at the Tandoori Kingdom at 428 Blake Street in Barrie have been very busy getting everything ready for your celebrations.
The five days of celebration are very similar to getting ready for New Year on January 1 in our calendar. Day one is cleaning the home and shopping for gold, while Day two is decorating at home with lamps and coloured sand. The main festival is celebrated on the third day with feasts and prayer. The New Year is celebrated of the fourth day – that’s when you exchange gifts and sweets with everyone. Finally, the tradition on the fifth day is to have brothers visit their married sisters who welcome them with a meal.
Getting ready for Saturday’s gift-giving should really include a trip to the Tandoori Kingdom. They are ready with an incredible array of beautiful Indian sweets. Choose your favourites and try some new ones. The staff will package them for you in beautiful gift boxes ready for presents. The gifts are very significant to the Diwali Celebration. Each gift is given to strengthen the feelings of fellowship and companionship while defining the bonding and connections between individuals.
So if Diwali is on your family calendar, or you’ve never tried any of the delicious Indian sweets, head over to the Tandoori Kingdom. Share a meal, order takeout, or have them cater for you…but most of all pick up some of those tantalizingly delicious Indian sweets! Better yet – call! (705) 503 1400 to make your reservation now!
