Are Merry Christmas and the English New Year celebrated as a festival by Nepalese people in Nepal?

Travellers frequently ask about the celebration of Christmas and the English Yew Year in Nepal. Likewise, they often ask us if Nepalese people celebrate Christmas and the English New year as their festivals. It’s a genuine question – as the majority of the population in Nepal is Hindu, which is above 80% of the total population. The remaining 20% are the religions of Buddhism, Islam and Christianity. 

There are many festival celebrations in Nepal. However, mainly, the greatest festival in Nepal are Dashain and Deepawali. Nevertheless, Nepalese people celebrate Merry Christmas and English New Year in Nepal with great joy. However, the government does not provide a public holiday. Mainly, some tourists hub, for instance, Thamel, Durbar Marg, tourist hotels and supper markets, are nicely decorated like a princess during the festivals. Similarly, the festival is equally celebrated in the Lakeside area of Pokhara, Chitwan and some other tourist destinations of Nepal.

There are also Christan devotees in Nepal who celebrate Christmas as their festival. They go to church, exchange presents and prays for peace and prosperity in the world. During this festival, the shopping centres are busy selling the colourful hat of Santa Claus and some lights to the children.
