Dasain

It is the holiday season in Nepal right now, analogous to our Christmas season. The festivals of Dasain and Tihar take place from mid to late October.

A few of the Sam's House children visited relatives (if it was possible) for a day of celebration. All the others went to Dinesh and Rekha's house for a day of ceremony, treats, and play. Typically gifts are given--sweets and sometimes toys or clothes. By all reports everyone had a fantastic time.


Mamata receiving tika from Dinesh.


Dinesh giving tika to Banita.


Rekha giving tika to Sarita.


Pratima and Kiran.


The whole gang after blessings.


And the best part... celebrating with a meal prepared by Rekha. That's didis Tara and Asuna in the background.
