Dashain is the one of the longest and most favorite festival of Nepal. Skyes of Kathmandu filled with kites & swings are set on the grounds everywhere for children and grownups alike. Animals like goats, buffaloes, ducks and chickens are sacriﬁced to the goddess Durga on Kal Ratri to observe her victory. Following day, on Nawami, some peoples clean their vehicles and sacriﬁce animals or eggs for safe journey throughout the year.
The next day (10th day of this festival) is Dashami (Tika), people dress up well and visit elders to receive large red tikas on their foreheads. In the next days of Dashain, families and friends come together, gifts are exchanged & blessings are imparted on this festival.
