Bada Dashain is the longest Hindu festival in Nepal, traditionally celebrated for two weeks with prayers and offerings to Durga, the Mother Goddess.
In addition to worship the Goddess Durga, the children and their caretakers are holding celebrations, for the fertility of the land and a year of good harvest.
Dashain also emphasizes the importance of our big family. All the government agencies, schools, shops and other public sectors are closed during this festival period so the whole family can fully enjoy this special time of the year.
Together with their neighbors, our kids started celebrating. They dressed up, cook, laugh and dance together, which brings this family together even more in this extraordinary time.
