Tamu Lhosar

Tamu Lhosar is a festival celebrated by the Gurung community, an ethnic group primarily found in Nepal. It falls on the 15th day of the 10th month of the Gurung lunar calendar, which usually occurs in late December or early January.

The festival is a time for family and friends to come together and celebrate with feasting, dancing, and music. People wear traditional Gurung clothes and perform cultural dances like Sorathi, Maruni, and Ghatu.

On Tamu Lhosar, people offer prayers and thanksgiving to their deities and ancestors, seeking blessings for good health, happiness, and prosperity in the coming year. They also prepare special dishes like selroti (sweet rice bread), gundruk (fermented leafy greens), and dhindo (maize porridge) to share with family and friends.

Tamu Lhosar is an important festival for the Gurung community and is observed with great enthusiasm and reverence. It is a time to honor the past, celebrate the present, and welcome the future with hope and joy.
