Festivals are the inseparable part of Nepali culture. Numerous festivals are celebrated in Nepal every year. National festivals have fixed dates on calendars but religious festivals are fixed by astrologers following the lunar calendar. One of the best aspects about the festivals in Nepal is that they are celebrated with the great enthusiasm and passion the way it used to be hundreds of years ago when people had no other means of entertainment.
