Girls get ready and dress in your best with your protection bands to tie Rakhi/s to your brother/s and get lots of presents and most importantly get protected. Why protected? Because Raksha means protection, Bandhan means tie. Well that’s what Raksha Bandhan means.
So Sisters, get ready to tie a special band of love and prayers on your brother's wrist on this day of Rakhi to show how much you love him and pray for his safety. He in turn takes an oath to always take care of you and protect you.
Do not be sad if you do not have a brother. You can also tie a rakhi to your special friend. Do you know who is the best person you can tie this special thread to? Your friend Lord Krishna Himself. Who better than Him to love you and protect you?
Besides dressing yourself up you will also need to decorate your Puja Thali in which you will place the Rakhi prepared by yourself along with some sweet dish for the day. So.... Get set go....
