Raksha Bandhan

Raksha Bandhan, also known as Rakhi, is a Hindu festival that celebrates the bond between brothers and sisters. It is observed on the full moon day of the Hindu month of Shravana, which falls in August.

The holiday is a time for siblings to express their love and affection for one another and to reaffirm their bond of love and protection. On Raksha Bandhan, sisters tie a sacred thread, called a rakhi, around the wrist of their brothers as a symbol of their love and protection. In return, brothers offer gifts and vow to always be there for their sisters and to protect them. Raksha Bandhan is a joyful and meaningful occasion that is celebrated by millions of Hindus around the world.
