Raksha Bandhan 2017 Date and Day
The date is locked for 7th August 2017, Monday. The ultimate day to mark the beautiful relationship between siblings is finally here. Its Raksha bandhan time! As the sister ties the sacred thread on her brother’s wrist, this is the day to cherish and be thankful for the blessing called sibling love.
Rakhi started as a festival of the brother’s resolve to protect the sister. But times have changed. And with the changing times, a lot of gender roles have changed. Yet, the essence of Rakhi, the love between brother and sister, has remained the same. This year, have a unique and special RAKHI celebration with your loved ones. Make it an affair to remember, make it special and exclusive.
Here are a few ideas for that super awesome and memorable Rakhi Celebration-
1. An AudioVedio Presentation
Time to get nauseatic by recalling those special moments that you’ve spent together since childhood! A photo presentation with your pictures and some special recordings from your parents, family members, and friends etc to make it interesting and a trip down the memory lane that refreshes and brings a smile to your sibling’s face.
Make it large by planning a full day outing with your brother/sister! Go visit an adventure park or just plan a movie date. Treat him/her to their favorite food at their favorite joint and have a good time!
Over the years, sisters have used various ways to express their love for their brothers who are in some other city or country and can’t make it on that day. These include sending rakhi’s or cards to their siblings. However, the advancement of technology has witnessed new ways for sisters to express their love. Internet has played a pivotal role in bridging the gap. Today, apart from the rakhi and greeting cards, sisters send internet e-cards and messages to convey their love to their brothers. You will find plenty of well designed e-cards and messages with beautiful words on the internet.
4. A Theme PhotoShoot
If your brother /sister are a social media addict then this one would be her favorite celebration. Hire a professional photographer to capture all sorts of fun and candid poses with rakhi themed props to make the occasion significant. Trust us, this one will work wonders!
