Sample  Letter to Inform a Friend About Recent Diwali Experience


Dear Elisa Smith, NY

I hope you are doing well. I am also fine. As you know I am in India these days because of Diwali. I am writing this letter to tell you that how my first Diwali in India went. So, my arrival was wonderful, my all maternal cousins came to airport to receive us. We went to our grandmother’s house, and my all aunts, and uncles were staying with us. We all bought traditional Indian dresses, and bought many fire crackers as well. As I was encountering fire crackers for the first time therefore I was afraid as well but later I enjoyed. We had grand Pooja at our place after that we all ate sweets, and had delicious Indian food. After that we got money from the elders. We saved the money because we all cousins decided to go to fun land. At night we all played games, and had so much fun with fire crackers. Next day my all cousins left as their schools were started but we really had a lot of fun. Now I have realized that celebrating your cultural events in your home country gives you a very special feel instead of celebrating it in another country. I really missed you because you are my only best friend, and I could not resist writing you my experience over here. I am coming back to London next week, and then I will show you all the pictures I have captured here. I am really going to miss this place. I want to stay more but because of school, and my father’s job I have to come back.

Pay my regards to everyone at home. See you soon.

Write a letter to friend to tell how you celebrate Diwali in English



Dear friend

Hello how are you.

Hope you find this letter in good health. I received your letter yesterday in which you repeatedly asked me about how I celebrated my Diwali in England. Well at first even I thought I might not be able to celebrate it here knowing fireworks are illegal to crack in here but then all the societies head from my university begged our vice chancellor to let us celebrate this occasion even for two to three hours. After a lot of begging, and convincing she gave in, and that’s how we started our preparation to celebrate diwali. First of all me, and my girlfriends went out to shop for some traditional dresses, and on the diwali eve we got ready in completely cultural attire with some heavy Indian jewelry. When we reached the venue we were welcomed with loud speakers bursting the top most Bollywood songs of the year. You know whenever I hear a Bollywood song staying still turns into a challenge for me. We danced for about an hour  on all the biggest hits of the year, and soon after that the event manager asked us to join him in the main ground where all the stocks for fireworks was present. Although we were just allowed to play with small stuff still it was a lot of fun. At the end they started the biggest fireworks I have ever seen till yet it was so magnificent to see little colorful sparkles of fire bursting into the sky for merely a second but giving such a breath taking view. It was one of the most memorable nights of my life. I have sent you the pictures as well so that you can see what a fantastic event it was. I am sure you also had tons of fun celebrating it in India, and I hope you missed me there because I definitely missed you here.
