According to Hindu mythology, the history of Bhai Dooj originates from the beautiful bond between Lord Krishna and sister Subhadra who welcomed him with sweets and flowers after he defeated the demon Narakasura. From that time onwards, the day Lord Krishna visited his sister Subhadra was called Bhai Dooj.

It’s also believed that on this day, the God of Death Yama visited his sister Yami. That’s why the Bhai Dooj festival is also referred to as Yama Dwitiya in some areas.

So, Bhai Dooj is the occasion for a brother and a sister to celebrate their family bonds. People can send wishes and gifts to their beloved siblings, while some activities are often organized to celebrate the Bhai Dooj spirit.
