Kukur Tihar: The day all dogs wish to be in Nepal

A Facebook post on the page Madshout on the occasion of the Nepalese Hindu festival of Kukur Tihar.

The ‘Day of the Dog’ or ‘Kukur Tihar’ is when every dog will wish to be in Nepal. That’s when the saying every dog has its day turns literal as people propitiate the canines with the choicest of food and garlands. The festival is rooted in the belief that the dog is the messenger of the God of Death, Yamraj.
