Christmas has shown its arrival extravagantly at Dhukuti, Kupondole with jingle bells and innovative wreaths made out of local materials like straw, hanging on the walls of the showroom. A Christmas celebration was held on 12 December at the Dhukuti showroom to mark the arrival of new Christmas décor and products for the holidays.

 “Though Christmas isn’t our own festival, we celebrate it every year. It is not only a way to get our products exposure to the market and to boost the enthusiasm of our producers, but it is also a way to marvel with the Christian community here in Nepal.” said Meera Bhattarai, Executive Director, Association for Craft Products. From Christmas-tree decorations to bells to other items, the plethora of merchandise was a pleasure to see and own.
