Celebrating Raksha Bandhan with The Playful Indian | Brother and Sister Gift Ideas
Dina, the founder of The Playful Indian, has written a lovely blog post focussing on gift ideas for celebrating Raksha Bandhan, which this year takes place on Sunday August 26th.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with Raksha Bandhan, Dina also wrote a really helpful post here that includes a free downloadable Raksha Bandhan colouring page.
We really loved Dina’s explanation:
"Raksha Bandhan, a special day which celebrates the sacred bond between a brother and sister. A Rakhi, sacred thread, is tied around the right hand wrist of the brother by the sister. This symbolises the protection of the brother from all evil. Blessings for their long life are made and indian sweets such as barfi is shared."
Dina also had a lovely message for her own brothers:
“I have 2 younger brothers, and although we may fall out or disagree on things every now and again, I will always love them and be there for them no matter what. “
We are really happy that Dina chose to include BearHugs as a gift idea in her gift guide.
