Dashain festival in Nepal

nepal holidays
Everybody cares in Nepal

Nepal’s version of Christmas is just coming to an end now, the year here is 2071 and it’s the festival of Dashain.  Like Christmas it’s a great time of feasting and the coming together of families, it lasts over a week.  There are quite a lot of animal sacrifices over the period, as well as blessings within families and even the anointing of cars and motorcycles – these are decorated with flowers, garlands and red vermilion powder.   Even the animals have a sense of getting together, here is a picture from a street in Kathmandu. Happy deshain, and happy holiday in Nepal.
