History of Raksha Bandhan :
This ancient Hindu festival is also known as Rakhi Purnima. It is celebrated on the full moon of the Hindu month 'Shravana'.
It is a public holiday in several regions in India, dependent on what day of the week it falls on.
Why Raksha Bandhan is celebrated :
Raksha Bandhan celebrates the bond between brothers and sisters. As the concept of love and duty between siblings is universal, this festival is popular with many cultures in India and transcends its Hindu origin.
To mark their relationship, on the morning of Raksha Bandhan, the sister and brother will gather together with their family. Often in front of a lamp, the sister ties a rakhi (thread) on her brother's right wrist. This symbolises their emotional bond and the renews the vow of the brother to protect his sister.
Rakhi's can also be used to celebrate other relationships between friends and neighbors. It is said that giving a Rakhi is a polite way for a girl to put someone from the opposite sex who is making unwanted romantic advances into the friend-zone.
Rakhis are often made from silk with gold and silver threads and can be decorated with sequins, and semi-precious stones.
