Happy Raksha Bandhan!

Today is one of my favorite holidays! It's called Raksha Bandhan (or also known as the brother-sister holiday :) It's a really sweet holiday :) On this holiday, sisters tie Rakhis (pronounced rockys) on their brother's wrists to symbolize love and friendship between each other. The Rakhi (as seen in the pic above) is just a simple bracelet (that always seem to look pretty feminine :))... you don't just tie it on your biological brothers, but people in your life that are like brothers to you :)

All day we've had people coming by, visiting, sharing sweets and we've been tying bracelets on each other :)
We had a lot of kids in our house today :) The kid's rakhis are fun... they're kinda like big gaudy stuffed animals on their wrists :) You can sorta see them in the pic below :)
It was a fun day of hanging out with our "brothers & sisters" :) It's fun that we really feel like these people are our brothers and sisters :)
