Preparations for Dashain - November 2012

Dashain, which lasts eight days, is the most important Hindu feast in Nepal. During the festivities, very day a different religious duty has to be fulfilled. Dashain can be compared to Christmas in regard to the preparations. Before the feast everything needs to be cleaned and washed, as well as damages repaired which the monsoon had caused during the summer. Essential for the kids - every child will get new clothes for Dashain. Especially important is receiving the blessing of the adults of one’s own family and a little present. During those days, all family members of the children’s home become little closer. Every child who cannot be picked up by their biological parent or relative for those special days, are happy about every adult who blesses them and gives them presents.
