President Obama Celebrates Tihar in the White House

In the post that appears after this one, I report on the celebration of Tihar or Deepawali at my house.  I just learned about this celebration of the festival (called Diwali in India) at the White House.

I liked the celebration at my house better, even though it was somewhat more modest, because it was with loved ones.

But President Obama describes the meaning of the festival better than I did.
