Now to tell you about my experience with Oye Happy

I ordered Chocolates from Santa, Birthday Countdown magnet, and Plant a Tree. Well as I have narrated above, the ideas are great, especially the Plant a Tree one. I was in fact looking to find something to pay respect to my parents in heavens for the Shradha Paksha which began on 2nd September 2020. And because of the pandemic, organising Brahmins for lunch was very risky. This permitted me to plant a tree in their name which will last for years and keep spreading happiness around it.
