Raksha Bandhan (Hinduism)
Tell a Friend About This EventTell a Friend

This Hindu festival celebrates the relationships between brothers and sisters, but extends beyond blood relations to incorporate "adopted" brothers and sisters: good friends and distant relatives. Sisters give brothers rakhis, a holy thread tied around their wrist, in exchange for gifts and protection. Rakhis are also exchanged to show solidarity and kinship.

When: Monday, August 7, 2017
