“a Rakhi”

The tradition on Rhaksha Bandhan is for a sister to tie a bracelet made of colorful thread, called “a Rakhi” around her brother’s wrist, and to say a prayer for his well being. The brother then pledges to protect and love his sister, and gives her a gift, such as clothing, jewelry, or an envelope full of money. The siblings then feed each other sweets.

On Tuesday, Carol brought some “a Rakhi” from School of Hope as gifts for us. We were very exicited to tie it for each other as sisters and brothers.
