Be Happy with new dresses.
Make it sweeter with a variety of sweets.
Make it brighter with the lamps and lights.
Make it louder by bursting crackers.
No life without Sun
But purchasing items without need is waste. We should never do such purchases. I also personally feel that only the items which are required to be purchased. On the occasion of Deepavali, we will sweet packets or dry fruits packets as gifts from some organisations. So there is no necessity for me to purchase separately.
As mentioned by the author many people will go for unnecessary purchase and the unnecessary items will get accumulated in the house and it will be a big problem to the housewife to organise all such items in an order.
So one should plan the purchases as per the requirement only.

Even this challenging situation would ease
Of course, there has been some changes in the style of purchasing. In the past, we were purchasing the materials from the cloth stores and then there were tailors to stitch the materials as per our fittings. During the festive season, we could have observed inordinate delay in the process of stitching. Kids were eagerly waiting for the date of delivery of the materials. The date of delivery of materials provided them immense joy.
Though purchases should be made as per our requirement, but during the festive season,,we ignore this norm.
"Life is easier when you enjoy what you do"
There are other cultural elements in festivals as well. People buy clothes during festivals and bring for children new dresses to add to their joy. Besides shopping, festivals provide people with all the refreshing and rejuvenating experience. Festivals bring together communities in the neighbourhood and enjoy together. Buying new items during festivals are encouraging as it increases the festive mood but exaggeration is not encouraging. During the festive season, we should also look at the weaker section and include them in celebrations, if possible help them with a donation so they also buy some essentials during the festivals. The actual message of these festivals is sharing the bond of peace and prosperity, strengthen the thread of brotherhood. Shopping on festive season is fine but unnecessary wasting money should be stopped.
Most industries and companies declares bonus for diwali or christmas, this extra chunk of money provokes people for new purchases. It is true that the stock has to be checked before buying new things. In case of clothes, it may not go inline as people are fascinated by the colour, style, looks and the cost.
Regarding appliances, it is a necessity to check the quality of products lying aside in store rooms rather than just investing money on new ones.
