Today is one of the biggest celebration for Nepali women. Teej, a day when women fast for the whole day for marital bliss, well-being of their spouse and children and purification of their own body and soul. Married women fast for their husband’s long life, prosperity, and long and strong relationship between them in this life and all the lives to come. While the unmarried pray for the perfect husband. Unless someone is ill or physically unfit, fasting is followed by women and girls who have reached puberty.

- To celebrate the day I get together with my friends and family and enjoy the food, fun and dancing.
- Last week I went to an organized celebration where we had so much fun.
I went there with a group of my friends and we had the time of our life with laughter, dance and so much fun. AS was nice enough to look after Chhori that day so I had a great evening with my girl friends.
Then on the weekend, we celebrated Teej at our friend’s place. I dressed up in traditional Nepali dress and Chhori also enjoyed wearing her kurta.
I baked a cake for the occasion and everyone contributed towards the food.
We had a great time eating, dancing, laughing and having fun. Chhori also enjoyed in her own way 🙂
Wishing Happy Teej to all of you out there celebrating. Have a great time and enjoy your day.
Take care everyone,
