Dasai or dasain or Dashai whichever way you would spell it, it is about two weeks long festival that fall between the month of Asoj, September or October. It is the celeberation of goddess Durga's triumph over evil. Pretty much all creeds and caste of Nepal participate in this festival by offering animal sacrifice to the goddess Durga and taking Tikkas and the blessings from the elders. People visit their families all over the country at this time and all the government offices remains closed for this period.

Although, Dasai has taken social significance, few non-Hindu are renouncing this festival.
