When we got to India we were greeted by some lovely individuals who told us all about India and some of their festivities. We learned to Bolly wood dance (So you think you can dance has got NOTHING on us), made sparkly elephant decorations, ate some fantastic curry dishes, & celebrated Raksha Bandhan (a celebration of brothers & sisters).
|for Raksha Bandhan the kids all made their brothers or sisters a card and gave them a bracelet|
I think that if Grandma Luvlee could she would decorate her home like she did for India every day (that or Mexico). It was such a fun day full of happy colors. One of our highlights was watching pieces of the movie "Jodha Akbar". It is our favorite Bollywood movie. Jett is still singing the songs from it.(Only he doesn't know the words-it is quite lovely). Watch the video here if you want it stuck in your head to, trust me you won't regret it:)
