Hariyali Teej is celebrated in Haryana, Rajasthan and Punjab. It is also known as Shravan Teej. Traditionally, the Hariyali Teej festival is celebrated as the reunion of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati.
“Teej” refers to third day after the full moon, every month. There are actually three Teej festivals — known as Haryali (Green) Teej, Kajari Teej and Hartalika Teej.
One night before Teej, women put intricate designs of henna on their hands and feet. It is a part of Teej Shringar, the whole makeup thing which girls and married women do on the occasion. The married women hide their husband’s name in the design and ask them to reveal it in a playful game.
The festival is about celebrating womanhood and community. All the ladies gather at a place and take part in the following fun-filled activities.
So celebrate this festival with full of love and joy….
