Raksha Bandhan, the festival that celebrates the relationship between brothers and sisters, is celebrated on Saturday, 29 August. The festival is mainly observed in India, Mauritius and some parts of Nepal by Hindus, Jains, and Sikhs.
On the special day, sisters tie a rakhi (sacred thread) on the wrist of their brothers and the custom shows the love between siblings. Once a girl ties the rakhi on her brother's wrist, he has to take a lifelong vow to protect her. Special gifts will also be exchanged between brothers and sisters.
Check out some messages, greetings to share with brothers and sisters below:
