The festival of light is held in the country of Nepal every year. Also called Tihar, this five day event celebrates various great things in life. The second day celebrates the DOG! This day is called Kukur Tihar or Kukur Puja (worship of the dogs)
Dogs are believed to be messengers of Lord Yamaraj and are worshiped on this day. People offer garlands, tika and delicious food to dogs and acknowledge the cherished relationship between humans and dogs.
Although we worship our pets daily, we think it’s cool when our special friends are acknowledged.
