We wish a very happy Tihar to all our readers and hope Laxmi will bring a lot of fortunes to everybody on Laxmipuja.
We wrote an introduction to Tihar previously. Today is Laxmi Puja, festival of light and worshiping of goddess Laxmi. For those who want to print the images of Laxmi, we posted some Goddess Laxmi posters too.
Tihar is the second biggest festival in Nepal and is celebrated for 5 days starting by worshiping a bird (c
row) followed by worshiping dog and cow. The fifth day is the special day in which sisters offer tika to their brothers and vice versa.
Deusi and Bhailo tradition is somewhat similar to Halloween festival in western world (without the ghost and pumpkin part). We had collected some Deusi and Bhailo songs in this previous post.
