Tihar festival at our Annapurna Self sustaining Children's Home November 2018

Written by Kira Kay on .

Tihar is a wonderful and special festival in Nepal. It is 5 days of celebration that is concluded with Bhai Tika - a beautiful ritual between brother and sister - both celebrating the family connection and reaffirming the bond of support between brother and sister. In our Home of many brothers and sisters this is a very special and fun day! The tradition is that the sisters make a yummy tasty plate of sweet favourite foods for their brother and give a blessing for good health, safe life and abundance and the brother returns the blessings and gifts the sister money or something that can support her life. Here is a glimpse of our special day.
