Rakhi

In Bhadon, on the day of the full moon, the Rakhi festival is celebrated. On this day sisters tie the multi-coloured thread on the right wrist of their brothers. So long as a sister has not tied the Rakhi to her brother, she is not supposed to eat anything. After she has done so she offers some sweets to her brother and he in return gives her some gift or money. Rakhi is meant to remained the brother of his promise to protect his sister whenever she needs this protection.
