Blessed Rainy Day tomorrow

The Bhutanese will be observing the Thruebab or Blessed Rainy Day tomorrow on 24 September 2019.

The day is a holiday marking the end of the monsoon season in Bhutan. On this day, all natural water resources in the country are considered to be sanctifying and it is believed that an outdoor bath will cleanse all of bad deeds, obstructions, defilements and accumulated bad karma. Families traditionally gather for a meal of Thup at breakfast time.

The holiday also marks the end of the farming season and the beginning of the harvest season.

The RNR Family would like to wish everyone a Happy Blessed Rainy Day !!!
