In India, we have festivals to celebrate every season, every occasion and every relation around - Raksha Bandhan being a major one. Popularly referred to as Rakhi, the festival is celebrated annually to mark the beautiful bond between brothers and sisters. Every year, the festival of Raksha Bandhan falls on the full moon day in the month of Shravana in the Hindu calendar. As per drikpanchang.com, this year Rakhi will be celebrated on August 30. However, some reports state, it might be celebrated the next day, i.e., on August 31, 2023. A quintessential Raksha Bandhan celebration features sisters trying Rakhi on their brother's wrists and receiving gifts in return. They also treat each other with homemade foods or go out for meal dates.
If you are planning to treat your sibling to something special this year, then you are just at the right place. In this article, we will share some sneak peeks into the Rakhi offerings from across India. Read on.
