Raksha Bandhan is a Hindu festival that celebrates the bond between brothers and sisters. This year, it will be observed on Wednesday, August 30, 2023. On this day, sisters tie a sacred thread called a “Rakhi” around their brothers’ wrists, symbolizing their love and protection for one another. In return, brothers give gifts and promise to protect their sisters from harm. The festival is also celebrated to promote unity and harmony among all people, regardless of their religion or background. Raksha Bandhan is a joyous occasion that brings families together and strengthens the bond between siblings.
