There Is A Festival In Nepal Every Year That Thanks Dogs For Being Our Friends
There is an entire day during a festival in Nepal dedicated solely to thanking dogs for their loyalty and friendship. The time itself is called “Diwali” celebrated by Hindus, and is a ‘festival of lights’ celebrated by millions every year in the fall, in india, nepal and elsewhere.
Specific to Nepal, there is a day during this celebration dedicated to all the Dogs, called Kukur Tihar, specifically to thank our 4-legged companions for always being our loyal friends.
Tihar is a five day Hindu festival, but the second day is reserved for our loyal companions.
It is called Kukur Tihar or Kukur Puja (worship of the dogs).
People offer garlands, tika (a mark worn on the forehead), and delicious food to dogs, and acknowledge the cherished relationship between humans and dogs.
The garlands are a sign of respect for the animals.
Because dogs are the best people.
The images honoring these animals are truly breathtaking.
The thought of this beautiful festival is lightening the heavy hearts of dog lovers everywhere, amid horrendous news bites from another kind of festival in Yulin, China, recently.
With red powder, the dogs are marked on their foreheads as a sign of sacredness.
I really love this.
