Wednesday, 8th September 2010. The Father's Day, or 'Buwa ko mukh herne din', is being observed across the country on Wednesday.
 
The festival celebrates the deep bond shared by the fathers and their children. In the Newar community, sons and daughters offer delicacies and gifts to honour and express their love towards their fathers. Sweets and clothes shops have been thronged by people since yesterday.
 
Also on this day, people who have lost their father pay a visit to temples to perform Sraddha, a Hindu ritual of offering food to their deceased father.
