Dashain is one of the biggest festivals celebrated in Nepal. Hindus mainly celebrate this festival. On Dashain, we worship Goddess Durga. This festival is celebrated from Ghatasthapana to Kojagrat Purnima. We put a red tika or white tika. Especially red tika, some castes like Tamang, Gurung, Magar, Rai put on white tika. We also put jamaras and receive blessings from our elders. They also give us some money, also known as “Dakshina”. During this festival, we also go to temples and worship the various Gods and Goddesses. On this day we eat meat, wear new clothes and enjoy ourselves with our near and dear ones.
