Indian Independence day is here to be soon. Its a great occasion to come together with our flatmates, apartment and society mates to have a grand celebration. Plan on fun activities like Flag hoisting, a choir performance of the national anthem by the society ladies and a speech by aged members of the society. If you are confused, then here are 10 practical tips to celebrate independence day in your society:
Plan on an ethnic wear theme:
It is the perfect occasion to bring out those khadi sarees and kurtas out of the cupboard. Get little ones dressed in ethnic outfits too and pin Indian flag brooches on their collars and lapels.
Decorate the colony/society:
Make the event larger than life by pasting balloons and streamers on the walls, doors, and other areas in and around the society. Buy a good amount of flags and decorate them on the path leading to the flag hoisting place.
Hoist a hand painted flag:
All the kids of the society can come together for this activity. A hand painted flag will have more value than a store brought one. And the kids will definitely enjoy the experience of hand painting the flag.
National anthem choir by ladies of the society:
The ladies of the society can contribute to the party by lending their mellifluous voices to singing the national anthem and national song at the independence day party.
Lots of great food to revel in the joys:
Food is also an important part of any event. Don’t stop at just samosas and sweets. Indulge in some tri-color delights which are prepared specially for Independence day celebration.
Fun and games, knowledgeable quizzes :
You can host a history quiz to see how well, kids adults and elders know about Indian history and culture. This will be a fun and knowledgeable activity.
Speech and awards ( if any):
Independence day is a great occasion to reward the good citizens of the society by appreciating their hard-work. This includes staff and flatmates both.
