Diwali is a special 5 day holiday observed in India, Australia, UK, Singapore, Thailand, Japan, and Indonesia. It is also called the “Festival of Lights”. It represents the spiritual victory of good over evil; knowledge over ignorance.

If you like the excitement of the 4th of July and the blessedness of Christmas, you can appreciate the feeling of the people who celebrate Diwali every year. It started about 2500 years ago as a religious holiday for Hindus, Sikhs, and Jains, and is now the biggest national holiday in India.

How is this holiday celebrated? Each of the 5 days is different. The activities involve shopping for gold, cleaning house, and  using sand to create “rangoli” patterns on the floor with colored sand. Also they pray, enjoy fireworks, visit, exchange gifts, and best of all, they feast!

It also sounds like the perfect time to use your Maglite Flashlights to light up the night after the fireworks, and when visiting your relatives and friends.

In 2021, the first day of Diwali is November 2, and the main day is November 4 (the new moon).

Happy Diwali!

Here are the future dates. It appears to change every year, because it is determined by the Indian calendar, which is tied to the cycles of the moon. The main day of the holiday is on the new moon:

Self-promotion Will Make You Successful
Self-promotion Will Make You Successful

October is “Self-Promotion Month”, according to NationalDayCalendar.com. This “Month” was started by Debbie Allen, an international self-employed business speaker. By the nature of her business, she must promote herself in order to make a living. Based on her philosophy, we offer these tips on promoting yourself, if you are an entrepreneur.

  1. Keep your eyes open to new ideas. Other people can give you tips on how to promote your business better.
  2. Ask your customers to refer you to their friends. Don’t be shy about this.
  3. Make new contacts. Join the chamber of commerce and go to all their business parties.
  4. Be an opportunist. If you sense a deal, jump on it. If you sell only donuts, and some of your customers ask about peanuts, get into the peanut business, also.

How to Get Your Maglite Engraved the Modern Way

Maglite Engraved the Old Fashioned Way
Maglite Engraved the Old Fashioned Way

We have come a long way in getting your Maglite engraved with your logo. Before laser engraving, marking metallic objects was done with a mechanical “scratcher”. Jewelers used to do it that way, and may still do it. I don’t know. It’s cheaper than buying a laser engraving machine.

 

 

 

Today, many Maglites come in color that is anodized onto the aluminum barrel. The laser cuts through this anodized layer, exposing the bare whitish aluminum. This results in your white logo neatly placed on a colored barrel.
