Teej is the fasting festival of women in Nepal. Married women across the nation observe Teej fast to honor Lord Shiva and for long and healthy life of their husband.
Unmarried girls also observe fast on during this festival for good luck finding a good husband. Teej celebrations lasts for three days. Performing traditional dances and singing songs form an important part of the Teej festival celebrations. The color red is considered to be auspicious for women observing Teej fast and so most of the women dress up in red and/or bridal clothes.
In 2016 the main day of Teej festival is September 4.
