On October 21, 2004 icBirmingham reported, "While the city council announced its Christmas events, scores of Hindus across Birmingham have been visiting temples and community centres to celebrate the nine-night religious festival of Navaratri. The festival began last Thursday and worshippers and visitors of all ages today described it as 'spiritually enlightening.' The Birmingham-wide activities have also brought communities together and given those who know nothing of the Hindu faith a chance to experience it."
