When I woke up this morning my two sons were still sleeping and I decided to bake them a treat. It's always nice to enter the kitchen and smell freshly baked muffins. I don't buy them at the store because  they can't be compared to mine. It's quick and easy to whip up muffins. You can make these in advance and freeze them. They are perfect when you are rushing to go to school or work. Just place one muffin straight from the freezer and microwave on high for about 20 seconds and you're ready to go.

They like to dress up in new clothes and they light up lamps and candles. Of course there is food and they like to exchange gifts. They celebrate Diwali for up to five days.
