Happy Deepavali 🕯Professor Police is back to share with you a little about Deepavali 😃 . Today our Indian friends celebrate The Festival of Lights 🕯🕯 which is known as Deepavali (deep - lamp, vali - array) in Singapore 🇸🇬. Most Singaporean indians came from Tamil Nadu, which is why the holiday has its Southern Indian name of Deepavali.
For Hindus around the world 🌍, the celebration of Deepavali revolves around the triumph of good 😇 over evil 😈, purity over impurity, light over darkness. It is one of the most important Hindu festivals. The festival is a time for rejoicing and renewal.
In their homes, people light small oil lamps called diyas. It is believed that deceased relatives come back to visit their families on Earth during this festival and the lights are a way to guide the spirits home. Photo 2 shows the beautiful light decorations in Little India district in Singapore.

Hello, Professor Police is back to share with you the other legends behind the mid autumn festival 🌕 . Remember the story of Chang'e, the lady that lives on the moon? A 2nd legend tells the story of jade rabbit. One day, 3 immortals wanted to find out which animal was the kindest, among the rabbit 🐇, fox 🦊 and monkey 🐒. They transformed themselves into pitiful old men and begged for food.
The 3 animals ran into a forest to find food for them. The fox returned with a big fish 🐟 and the monkey returned with many fruits 🍑🍎🍉🍒, but the poor rabbit returned empty-handed as it was unable to find anything. The rabbit asked the other two animals to help build a fire, and then attempted to jump into the fire to offer its own flesh to the old men. The immortals were touched by its kindness, and rescued the rabbit in time, before sending it to live in the moon with Chang’e.
The rabbit, now known as the Jade Rabbit, soon became great friends with Chang’e, and when the latter confided her story to the rabbit, the rabbit decided to try its best to concoct a medicine that could help Chang’e return to earth. During the Mid-autumn Festival, it is said that the rabbit can be seen making his divine medicine. . The tradition of eating mooncakes is believed to be linked to Zhu Yuanzhang, emperor of Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). In the late Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368), people were tortured by the cruel government, which prompted a nationwide rebellion. Zhu was a rebel leader and he sought to launch an uprising on the night of Mid-Autumn Festival. But it was difficult to get his orders to his supporters, as raids by government forces were intense. His military advisor, Liu Bowen, came up with the idea of hiding notes containing the date of the revolt in mooncakes and distributing them to resistance forces. The ploy worked and the rebels successfully overthrown the Yuan government. . . In celebration, Emperor Zhu ordered the mooncakes used be given to everyone. From that grew the custom of consuming mooncakes to celebrate Mid-Autumn Festival. . Prof Police hopes you have enjoyed the stories and wishes everypawdy a Happy Sunday 😃
