When is Bhai Bij?

This regional holiday is celebrated on the second day of the Hindu month of Kartik. This means it is celebrated shortly after the festival of Diwali.

Traditions of Bhai Bij

Bhai Bij, also known as Bhaiya Dooj, is a festival that focuses on siblings.

On this day sisters invite their brothers to join them for a feast of their favourite dishes. The sisters put a tilak (powder mark) on their brothers' forehead and pray for their long lives and brothers in return bestow them with gifts.

Close relatives and friends are also invited to join in the Bhav Bij celbrations.
