Bhaidooj comes 2 days after Diwali. It is an extremely special day for most brothers and sisters in India. It is celebrated on the 2nd day of the Shukla Paksha in the Hindu month of Kartik. This festival is known by different names in different parts of India and also its neighboring countries. Bhai Phonta, Bhai Tika, Bhratri Dwitiya are all different names of this festival.
The beauty of this festival is the innocence and pure love that is associated with it. It is a day when brothers and sisters get together to wish each other good health and prosperity through certain rituals. Gifts too are exchanged on this day. In 2020 Bhai Dooj will be celebrated on the 16th of November. With the winter slowly setting in, this occasion would be a lovely time to share the warmth of love.
