In Nepal we call it Tihar not Diwali. But we have “dewali” which is a pooja done every 3 years

Rangoli is not Nepali tradition. Stick to you roots instead of being a "khachhad".
And yes in Nepali we call it Depawali or Tihar.

Pandemic, you got it all wrong. We are not asking our Indian neighbors not to celebrate Diwali. All we are saying is Nepal has its own unique version and is called Tihar or Deepawali. Let’s keep our unique culture intact. Why dilute it by calling it a different name and do things which we had not done in the past?

“Didi Bahiniko aasirwad Daju bhailai lagirahos, sayapatri na oiliyesamma yamaraj le pani lana nasakos”

Hamro Tihar afnai kisim le deusi bhailo kheldai manau, bideshi nakkal garnu parne awasaktya chhaina, Hamro chad afaima paripurna chha!

Rangoli in Tihar? WTF??
Nepalese tihar, as explained by Chicagoan bro, is right. Keep the Nepalese culture alive!

Terai people of Nepal might do "Rangoli" thing, may be in Nepalgunj, Biratnagar, Bhairahawa, Janakpur, Birgunj, etc. There is no doubt that "Rangoli" has Indian origin but we shouldn't be looking down upon it and totally reject the idea. Because, thousand of Indian women get married to Nepalese men in Terai area and they do bring their indian heritage and culture to Nepal and is forwarded to their offspring.

जेपनि दक्षिणको नक्कल गर्छौं। मैले थाहा पाउँदा त्यो भारतको केही प्रदेशमा चलनमा थियो, र छ पनि। दक्षिणी भारतमा त दैनिक बिहानी संस्कारको रुपमा छ त्यो। यता हामीलाई हिन्दी फिलिम, हिन्दी सिरियल आदिले छोप्नसम्म छोपेकोछ। त्यो,थुप्रै अरु कुरा अनि हिन्दीका शब्द, वाक्यांश , उखान, उदाहरण धेरै कुरा पो हामीले आफ्ना भाषा, शब्द संस्कृतिलाई बिर्सेर अंगालिरहेका छौँ, र आफ्नो नेपाली हुनुको चिनारीलाई हेला गर्दैछौं। यसरी आफ्नो रीतिथिती, संस्कृति, भाषा आदिलाई संरक्षण अनि संवर्धन गर्नुको साटो नक्कल गर्नुमा गर्व गर्दै रह्यौँ भने एकदिन हामी नेपाली भनेर नभई अरु नै .....ीय भनेर चिनिन बेर लाग्दैन।

We people from border have shared culture with India. Everything is not black and white. There are different shades of gray. Bigots don’t know that.
