My favourite festival is Dashain. We wear different kinds of new clothes in Dashain. We eat beaten rice and meat in Dashain. We play kites in Dashain. It is very fun in Dashain. I see all the kids playing in the ground. Dashain is celebrated by everyone. We celebrate Dashain to observe victory over evil. We also play swing in Dashain. We celebrate Ghatasthapana in first day. We put jamara on the day of Ghatasthapana. We mainly celebrate the four days of Dashain and they are Fulpati, Astami, Nawami and Vijaya Dashami. People kill animals in the name of goddess during day of Astami and Nawami. Finally, we celebrate Dashami which is the last day of Dashain by putting tika on our forehead from our elders and seniors. We celebrate Dashain by getting gathered with all the relatives.
