Rebecca, Teej 2069 (2012), Ilam Nepal
Teej is an annual festival of Nepali women. The festival is celebrated with utmost dedication and love by the women in Nepal. Fabric stores, sarees and suit outlets are stocked with the bridal red colour fabric. Teej festival celebrations are carried further with feasts and traditional performances. On this day, women dress up beautifully. They clad themselves in red colored apparels, wear glass bangles, heavy ornaments and apply henna. Teej gives women an opportunity to dress like the newly wed. They worship the epitome of divine marriage - Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati, for longevity and prosperity for their husband and family.
