First of all, I would like to wish everyone - Happy Maghe Sankranti!!
Maghe Sankranti is one of the festivals in Nepal where it is celebrated the first day on the month of Magh according to the Nepali Calendar. During this day, I remember, my mom used to prepare all the goodies as pictured below and many more early on in the morning. As we got ready in the morning, she would then pour little oil on her hand and apply them in our head. This signifies that we have good health in coming years. In return, we would get her blessings.
Also, I remember this day as "Ghui-Chaku Khane Din", meaning, it is a day when we specially get to eat Ghee and Chaku (Solid Molasses) in our meal. One of the fond memories I have - when I was a kid, I used to spend some of my winter vacation in my Grandma's house in Bhaktapur. And, when it was time for lunch, my Grandma would hand me my plate with rice and curry and "ghui-chaku". We would then climb up the stairs to sit in the balcony and eat while still sitting in the sun. It was a wonderful moment!
