Today we celebrated a festival called Bhai Dooj.
The festival of Bhai Dooj is celebrated by Hindus on the on the last day of the five-day-long Diwali festival. On this day, sisters pray for their brothers to have long and happy lives by performing the tika ceremony, and brothers make gifts to their sisters. Carrying forward the ceremony in traditional style, sisters perform aarti for their brother and apply a red tika on the brother’s forehead. This tika ceremony on the occasion of Bhai Dooj signifies the sister’s sincerest prayers for the long and happy life of her brother. In return brothers bless their sisters and treat them with gifts.

On the day of the festival, sisters invite their brothers for a sumptuous meal often including their favorite dishes. The whole ceremony signifies the duty of a brother to protect his sister, as well as a sister’s blessings for her brother.
