  • Gaijatra – Nepali version of April Fool’s Day

    Posted on September 6th, 2010 No comments

    Traditionally, Nepali people don’t celebrate April Fool’s day. These days, due to the western influence people in cities make fool of each other on that day. But, we have our own fun filled day to make fun of. The festival equivalent to the April Fool day is called Gaijatra in Nepal.

    Gaijatra, the festival of cows, is celebrated to commemorates the death of people during the year. During the festival, people dressed as clowns and colorful cows are marched in the streets. When cows are not readily not available, people wearing cow masks march on the street. In olden days people had to walk bare-foot but these days such practice is discouraged.

    The festival is full of songs, jokes, mockery, and humor.  So, Gai Jatra can be considered one of the healthiest festival in which, people accept the reality of death and prepare themselves for "the life after death". Gaijatra usually falls on the month of Bhadra (August – September). It also marks the be
    ginning of festive season.
