How we celebrate Dashain

Santosh Gurung

Dashain is one of the most important festival of Hindus which is celebrated all over Nepal delightfully. It usually falls in the month of September or October and is usually celebrated for 15 days. At that time almost every school ,college and offices are closed because people who are far from home visit their home and to the home of their relatives .

We also get holiday of almost 30 days to celebrate Dashain and Tihar after our second terminal exam . It will be every exciting to meet my family after long stay in hostel. Our parents buy new clothes for us and so many sweets and many more   homemade foods . We will be visiting our maternal uncle home where we will play kites and bamboo swings . At the day of Dashain our elders put tika on our forehead  and gives us so many blessings along with some money .

Though I am Buddhist but me and my family members also celebrate Dashai as Hindu people do and we visit our relatives and they visit our home.  It is the festival of sharing the happiness . The people who are far from their homeland for study and employment they also come to their home for the celebration.
