Another festival in Nepal! Today is Teej, aka Haritalika, literally Nepal’s women’s day
This is the day when streets turn red with beautiful women clad in red sarees thronging the nearest Shiva temple.😍
Married women reunite with their parents and friends and sing and dance to celebrate the occasion. They fast for the long life and good health of their husband and family after a feast the former night. ❤️
Did you know?
👨🏫 Interestingly, the red velvet mite (Trombidium), also called “Teej”, appears only during monsoon season.
It is unclear if the mite is named after the festival, or vice versa.🤔
Anyway, happy Teej ❤️
