US President plans White House Diwali celebration: This year, US President Joe Biden intends to celebrate Diwali in the White House, according to a spokeswoman.
The specifics and scope of the preparations have not yet disclosed.
At her regular news conference, White House Press Secretary Karen Jean-Pierre told reporters, “Yes, he has plans to celebrate Diwali exactly as he did last year.”
In answer to a query, Jean-Pierre replied, “We don’t have a date to share with you at this moment.” But it is an event that he feels is highly significant, as he sees a collaboration with India and Indian Americans here in this nation.
Meanwhile, October has designated as Hindu Heritage Month by Maryland Governor Lawrence Hogan.
The White House has hosted a Diwali celebration every year since the Bush Administration.
