Raksha Bandhan: Where to get Rakhis in the USA

Raksha Bandhan (also known as Rakhi/Rakhri) is the Hindu festival that celebrates the love and loyalty between siblings. Historically a brother and sister only holiday, Rakhi has evolved to a sibling celebration to honor the bond between sisters, sisters-in-law and more. On this day, sisters tie a rakhi (blessed thread) on their sibling’s wrist, which symbolizes the sister’s love and prayers for her sibling’s well-being, as the other sibling promises to protect her. After the rakhi is tied, sweets and gifts are exchanged, as a thank you for the prayers and blessings. For those of us who don’t live near an Indian store, want to ship Rakhis to and within the USA, or just want modern options, this post is for you!
