Hi, it’s Meena again from Ama Ghar. I am really happy to be at Ama Ghar. I feel that Ama Ghar is my own home now. When I didnt get love from my own father, I got love of both mother and fathers at Ama Ghar. I am very thankful towards AmaGhar for doing this.We can go to our own home on our long holidays to meet our parents. I went home to celebrate the biggest festival Dashain and I was at Ama Ghar for another big festival called Tihar.I am going to write some information about this Nepali festival Tihar which is very popular at Nepal.Tihar is one of the main festival of Hindus. Tihar lasts for 5 days.
The first day is called Kaag puja,in this day, we worship the crows by feeding them.
The second day is called Kukur puja. Kukur puja means Worshipping the Dogs.
The third day is called Laxmi Puja. Laxmi is the goddess of money. In this day we worship the cows as well and every house is decorated with lights and flowers.

The fourth day is called maha puja. We worship ourself in this day and we get to eat different kinds of food.
