Fagu Purnima: The Blissful Holi Festival of Nepal

Kiwanis Nepal District celebrates Holi with the children of Jaya Secondary School, Thimi organized by the K-Kids Club of Jaya Brighter Future.

Holi is a festival of colors annually celebrated by the Indian community around the world in the first week of March. The bright-colored powders mark the festivity and signify harmony, peace, and prosperity.

In Nepal, Holi is celebrated in “Fagu Purnima”, the full moon day with great joy, especially in Terai. Nepalis exchange different smear color powders with their friends, family, and community members and wish them “Happy Holi! ".

During the festival, they share traditional food like "Guthiya" sweets, an old form of sweet which is made of dried milk powder and crushed nuts and "Bhang", an edible mixture created from the female cannabis plant's buds, leaves, and flowers. As a result, when milk, ghee, and butter are combined, a delightful beverage takes on a green hue.
