Happy Bhai Dooj 2018: Celebrated two days after Diwali Amavasya, Bhai Dooj is one of the most prominent Hindu festivals that celebrates the beautiful bond shared by sisters and brothers. On this day, a sister applies tilak on the forehead of her brothers, praying for their long life and good fortune.

This year, Bhai Dooj will be celebrated on 9 November, Friday.

Bhai Dooj is very similar to Raksha Bandhan when sisters pray for the brothers’ longevity and the latter vow to protect the former. Gifts are exchanged and a feast follows.

Don’t miss out on wishing your friends and family on the occasion. Here is a compilation of images and messages that you can share on the occasion of Bhai Dooj 2018.

* You, my sister, are my best friend. You have stood by me through thick and thin, you celebrate with me when I am happy, cheer me up when I am low. Thanks for being there whenever I need you. Happy Bhai Dooj!
Your dear brother
