Diwali in Nepal

We were very fortunate that our trip to Nepal not only coincided with the holiday Dashain, but also with a few days of Diwali, the Hindu festival of lights!

Day 1: worship of the crows

Day 2: worship of the dogs

Day 3: worship of the cows

Day 4: worship of the oxen

Day 5: Celebration between siblings.
Sisters put a tika on their brothers forehead and then the brothers give their sisters a tika.
