What is Diwali?

Diwali is the Indian “festival of lights”—a holiday celebrating the triumph of good over evil. In 2023, Diwali will be celebrated on November 12. Though technically religious, it’s also become a cultural event in North America celebrated with sweets and special foods. Learn about Diwali, when it occurs, and common traditions!

The themed nights were never removed. Just removed players wearing the warmup jerseys, and the tape (temporarily).

Ah, gotcha. I thought it was a blanket special nights are done in general thing. My guess is they'll still be selling specialized jerseys and other merch.

Honestly, you’re both wrong. It’s about culture not colour.

maybe watching more foreign films would open your mind to exploring other cultures ? 

even if it’s only for 3 minutes between play 😅


can I suggest the legendary Harakiri?
