Happy Raksha Bandhan 2020 Wishes Greetings, Whatsapp Stickers: With Covid-19 cases increasing every day in India, it is not the right move for most to visit their siblings on Raksha Bandhan. Instead of celebrating the festival like before and tying the rakhi on brother’s wrist, many have resorted to sending Rakhi by couriers. Video chatting apps like Zoom, WhatsApp, Google duo, and others will come to the rescue as the siblings perform the rituals virtually. Even the gifts will be sent via E-commerce websites like Amazon, Flipkart, or via digital wallets like Google Pay, Paytm, etc.
Raksha Bandhan or Rakhi is one of the oldest Hindu festivals which celebrates the bond and the love between a brother and a sister, or siblings. The dates of the festival vary each year as it is observed on the last day of the Hindu lunar calendar month of Shraavana. Since visiting each other is barely an option, you can send your siblings WhatsApp stickers to wish each other as well.
