Raksha Bandhan or Rakhi is a very special festival that celebrates the bond of love between a sister and brother. It is the most sacred and the strongest bond one can have. The sister ties a holy thread called the Rakhi on the wrist of her brother, praying to god for his long and healthy life. In return the brother promises to always protect her from all evil. The thread symbolizes that they will stand by each other through thick and thin. If you and your brother share this pure bond, then we at AAW have made a list of things you can do to make this day special for him.
1) Bake a cake:
When a sister ties her brother the Rakhi, she is supposed to give him something sweet to eat. Nothing can be better than a homemade cake that you especially baked for him. This makes the celebration even more memorable.
2) Make a collage:
Collecting all your childhood pictures with him and making a collage will get all emotional and talking about the fun stories that led to those pictures.
3) Go out for a trip:
If you think that you and your bother need some one on one bonding time, then you should definitely plan a trip where the two of you can enjoy and relax.
4) Go out shopping / day spend:
