Diwali lights for Vi
The next traveller's celebration day at the Gypsy Camp will be Vi's birthday on November 1.
I have just been down to the Gypsy Camp for a cup of tea, and they tell me that as November 1 is also Diwali, the Indian Festival of Lights, they will be hanging up lights through the trees and the caravans in honor of the Goddess Lakshmi, who brings good fortune.
The Gypsy King has decreed that Vi will be a Goddess for her birthday and that it will be celebrated with lights - doesn't matter what kind, candles, stars, sunshine, sparkling gems, lanterns, campfires - Vi will be bathed in the light of our love and respect for her.
It sounds like it will be a lovely night and though I know October31/November 1 will be a busy time with all the activities planned, I do hope you can make it.
