The year is 2021, and if you are reading this, you are alive and probably thankful for it, as you should be. We have officially survived the year 2020 and are halfway through this one, and that reminds us a lot about our blessings. The world is slowly healing and we are trying to resolve the trauma from the pandemic that we survived. It is getting a lot better, though. Life is coming back to normal. However, the only way, this is ever going to be normal is if we take proper precautions and don’t rush into anything.
So, social distancing prevails and we have to make peace with it now. It doesn’t mean that we have to stop having fun in any way, though. We can still be happy and do everything we want. We just have to find a new and safe way to do it, though. Celebrating festivals, for example, has been given a new meaning. Raksha Bandhan is one of the biggest upcoming festivals and we are all prepared to celebrate it in a new way. It is for siblings that won’t be able to meet on Raksha Bandhan because of travel restrictions. We are calling it Online Raksha Bandhan celebrations, 2021 and we can already tell that it is going to be amazing. Let’s have a look at how you can make the most out of it.
Take a day off of work or study
Some of you might be lucky enough to get a holiday for Raksha Bandhan but an impressive lot of us are not. However, try to take a day off of your work or study on Raksha Bandhan if you want to celebrate it as you used to in the good old days.
Send your sibling a rakhi online
No Raksha Bandhan is ever complete without a stunning rakhi and you can’t afford to miss out on that for obvious reasons. Buy a rakhi of your choice off of the internet and choose the option of online rakhi delivery to your sibling’s address directly. This way you won’t have to go through the hassle of buying a rakhi from the market and sending it to your sibling via courier services.
Shop your Raksha Bandhan look
Just because you are celebrating Raksha Bandhan 2021 online, it doesn’t mean that you don’t have to get ready or look special. Remember that it is all within you. The beauty of festivals is intensified as we put an effort into our beauty. So, make sure you buy your Raksha Bandhan outfit online and wear it.
Arrange for a family video conference
Now comes the final day of the celebration. You don’t have your family or siblings around but you have to celebrate. So, how do you do it? The answer is simple. Online. Schedule a video conference with all of your family and friends and celebrate Raksha Bandhan 2021, together. It will be so much fun and you will end up thanking technology for making the impossible possible.
Don’t forget to send and receive a Raksha Bandhan gift
Just like the rakhi is the essence of Raksha Bandhan, gifting is too. Gifts are exchanged between siblings once the rakhi has been tied. So, don’t be hesitant to ask your darling brother or sister for your gift. Likewise, don’t forget to send your brother or sister their gift as well. Remember that it always works both ways.
Promise to meet your sibling at the earliest possible
Once you are done with your online Raksha Bandhan celebrations, it is time to wrap it all up and you want to do it on a good note. So, make a promise to your sibling that you will meet them as soon as you can. Technology helps but reality hits differently.
Help the needy as a part of your celebrations
Festivals are for everyone. A great part of celebrating festivals is about sharing our happiness and blessings with those in need. So, do your part and help the poor and needy in any way you can. Kindness is the only way to go around in this world. Never let go of it.
