Raksha Bandhan is an annual ceremony celebrated in India, some other parts of South Asia, and among people around the world influenced by Hindu culture.
On this day, sisters of all ages tie a bracelet, talisman, or amulet, called the rakhi, around the wrists of their brothers, symbolically protecting them, receiving a gift in return, and traditionally investing the brothers with a share of the responsibility of their potential care.
Bundobust Liverpool will be giving out rakhis (specially designed fabric festival-style wristbands) to the first 50 customers to wish us Happy Raksha Bandhan, wearing this wristband will entitle them to 20% off food and drink at Bundobust for a whole year – until Raksha Bandhan 2020.
