Vi's Festival of lights the gypsy camp

The next traveller's celebration day at the Gypsy Camp will be Vi's birthday on November 1.
I have just been down to the Gypsy Camp for a cup of tea, and they tell me that as November 1 is also Diwali, the Indian Festival of Lights, they will be hanging up lights through the trees and the
caravans in honor of the Goddess Lakshmi, who brings good fortune.

The Gypsy King has decreed that Vi will be a Goddess for her birthday and that it will be celebrated with lights - doesn't matter what kind, candles, stars, sunshine, sparkling gems, lanterns,
campfires - Vi will be bathed in the light of our love and respect for her.

It sounds like it will be a lovely night and though I know October 31/November 1 will be a busy time with all the activities planned, I hope you can make it.

I'll be reminding you all again before the event. I have also posted this at the Gypsy Camp and L'Enchanteur.
In the meantime, of course, everyone is welcome at the Gypsy Camp at any time. Just loll around and listen to the songs and stories or share some of your own.

Party On!
