The name Tihar means the festival of lights, where many candles are lit both inside and outside the houses to make it bright at night.
The five-day festival is considered to be of great importance as it shows reverence to not just the humans and the Gods, but also to the animals like crow, cow and dog, who maintain an intense relationship with the humans.
People make things outside of their house, called “Rangoli” in Nepali & Hindi, to make their Home look attractive & beautiful at night.
Tihar wishing quotes in Nepali language for sisters
कोहि मेटाउन सकदैन् भाइ टिका को यस् भावना लाइ;
तिहार् को चाहना मा भुलि जान्छु दुनिया लाइ;
उथोस् नजर् तिम्रो अनूहार् मा मुस्कान् छायोस्;
तिम्रो जिन्दगि मा खुशियालि खूशि नै बरसोस्।
Happy Tihar 2073 to my sister
