Bhaidooj is normally observed on the second day of Shukla Paksha which comes in the Kartik month of the Hindu calendar.
While usually celebrated two days after Diwali, this time, Bhai Dooj will be celebrated three days after Diwali this year.
That means, instead of October 26, this year Bhai Dooj will be celebrated on October 27, which is a Thursday.
On this auspicious occasion, sisters invite their brothers to visit their houses and prepare their beloved brother’s favourite dishes.
In return, brothers promise to follow their responsibilities of protecting, caring and loving their sisters.
