Tihar

Tihar- The festival of lights and happiness…
tihar-festival-of-lamp

Tihar is celebrated somewhere in between the months of October and November. Known as the festival of lights, the five-day long festival is dedicated to Goddess Laxmi (the ‘Goddess of Wealth and Prosperity’). Nepalese people clean their houses, beautiful decorations are made and oil lamps are lit in the traditional way. This is done with anticipation that Goddess Laxmi will visit their homes and bless them. The festival also honors animals like crows, cows, and dogs as they have a deep significance in our day to day life. During the last day of the festival, all brothers are worshipped by their sisters with five- colored ‘tika’ and floral garlands. The brothers in return promise to protect them from life. Tourists visiting Nepal during this period are sure to be awed by the bright lights and celebrations.
