Teej is a fasting festival observed by women in Nepal. The festival is celebrated in August or early September in which, married women fast for the whole day to honor Lord Shiva and for the long and healthy life of their husband.
Unmarried girls fast, wishing for a competent husband. Traditionally Teej is celebrated for three days in which, the second day is the fasting day.
Most important features of Teej are:
- Red Saree (resembles bridal dress)
- Teej dances
- Teej songs
- Shiva worship
Three days of Teej:
Day 1 – ‘Dar Khane Din’, eating and partying.
Day 2 – ‘fasting day’ – singing and dancing
Day 3 – ‘Rishi Panchami’ – worshiping
Hence, Teej has everything from eating, partying, singing, dancing, and worshiping.
