How do you celebrate Krishna Janmashtami?  My dear friend R. held a spectacular party this past weekend to celebrate Janmashtami for the kids.  It was a small gathering of close friends and family and she staged a brief puja, bhajan, read a (self-written) story of Krishna for the kids, had colouring pages and – most impressive – she made a gorgeous paper mache “butter pot” pinata (pictured above, excuse my poor photography skills)!  The dads held it up while the kids took turns trying to crack it with a cane.  There was candy inside in lieu of butter – and it was so much fun for all of us!

She has also been making dioramas over the years, as they do in India, and she displayed 4 of them.  The figures are self-molded clay and painted.  Thank you R. for a wonderful and memorable celebration.
