Just like Raksha Bandhan, the festival of Bhai Dooj too celebrates the pure and deep sibling bonds existing between brothers and sisters all over the world. The festival celebrations are marked by sisters performing a special and religious Tikka ceremony of their brothers in which they apply Kumkum tilak on their foreheads and tie Mauli threads on their hands to keep them protected from evil eyes. Celebrated just after two days of Diwali, this pristine festival will be celebrated on 29th October 2019 this year in India. So do not just buy gifts for Diwali, make the festival of Bhai Dooj special for your siblings with wonderful gift options.
