Raksha Bandhan

Event Description:

Hindu holyday: On the full moon day of the Hindu month of Shravana, the deep love of brothers and sisters is celebrated with the act of sisters tying the sacred Rakhi thread, often made of gold and silver silk with semiprecious stones, around their brothers’ right wrists, signifying their inseparable bond of affection and trust. Rakhis may also be tied on close friends and neighbors, symbolizing their deep bond, and Rakhi festivals underscore the need for everyone to live harmoniously as brothers and sisters, with all people helping and protecting each other.
