Teej: A Nepalese Festival [#permalink]
28 Aug 2006, 11:53
Teej is a Nepali festival special to women, married and single. Goddess Parvati went on a fast to attract Lord Shiva. In keeping with that tradition, married women fast for their husbandâ€™s long life, prosperity. The unmarried pray for the perfect husband. Dress in red and wearing ornaments, women light oil lamps and stay up all night. The festival culminates in Rishi Panchami two days later. On the eve of Teej, they cook all kinds of dishes and eat them at midnight, celebrate by singing and dancing. They are not supposed to eat on Teej day.

Nice thread Prof. and nice pics.
Good to hear that we share so many cultural similarities.
BTW, the ladies in the first pic are looking rather tensed.
Maybe the effect of hunger after the grueling fast. _________________
