Blackhawk Celebrates Diwali
November 16, 2015
On Tuesday, November 10, Blackhawk Network held its annual Diwali celebration. One of India’s most significant holidays of the year, the “Festival of Lights” is a five-day celebration of good over evil, and light over darkness.
In honor of the occasion, Blackhawk’s Pleasanton office employees came together to enjoy an afternoon of fun activities. Many wore colorful, ethnic attire, and a henna tattoo booth was available for those wishing to have the temporary art applied to their hands. At noon, employees were treated to a potluck-style lunch that included traditional Indian snacks, flatbread and dessert, while festive Indian music played in the background. A photo booth was set up to help employees commemorate the event with their colleagues.
Everyone had a wonderful time, and some even reported that it was their first time sampling Indian cuisine. Happy Diwali and a prosperous new year to all from Blackhawk Network!
