sweetsFestivals are unforgettable occasions practiced from our ancient times representing happy mood and in that mood we never miss to celebrate it with sweets.Festivals may be religious,cultural or may be community oriented but it has a deeper significance that is passed from previous to present generations which makes our life colourful and interesting.It may be for a marriage,a house-warming ceremony or for a child’s birth we never miss to celebrate and serve it with sweets.Sweets plays a predominant role in all festivals like Diwali,pongal,ramzan,christmas and more importantly we exchange sweets and snacks during these occasions which brings unity in spite of diverse cultures.For kids it’s a total enjoyment and pleasure that they can wear new dresses and relish different kinds of sweets at one go and more over they happily meet friends,relatives and neighbors and spend their time joyfully playing with the near and dear ones.As a sweet-mad person I still have a great desire to enjoy mammoth varieties of sweets that are unloaded in our houses as gifts and sharing from our friends added up with sweets and savories that we make at our own home.Preparations for Diwali festival especially preparing sweets and savories begins before a week or even earlier in full swing and from that day itself festive mood is struck in the minds of people happily thinking and planning to make the occasion successful and memorable.Here is the list of some important sweets made during festivals.

    This is one of the most delectable collection of sweets that I have ever come across. Oh what an indulgence it was for my senses. I have a severe sweet tooth and can savour all your sweets without sharing. I think each one is a favourite here. The pampering of my senses continues with your wonderful post my dearest Vani.
