An introduction of Tihar:
Tihar is a 5-days long festival in Nepal. It is the second biggest festival after Dashain. In five days five different living things are worshipped. It include birds and animals and human.
The first day is the day of bird – worshipping crow. In Kaag Tihar food is offered to Kaag. The second day is the day of dogs. On Kukur Tihar, dogs are worshipped and offered foods of their likings.
The third day is the day of cow – and Laxmi. The day is one of the most colourful and interesting day. Newar people celebrate their new year and they also worship themselves in a traditional ceremony called Mha Pooja. Bhailo is another attraction of the day.
The fourth day is the day of Deusi, the Gobhardhan Pooja. On the day ox is worshipped and various programs are held for the celebration of the day.
The fifth and the final day is the day of brothers and sisters. Sisters wish long lives of their brothers and offer tika and foods. The brothers also do the sam to their sisters. It is the celebration of the closeness between the siblings. Those who don’t have their own brothers and sisters also make others their brothers or sisters for the day and enjoy the festival.
