Why do we celebrate Bhai Dooj?
Bhai Dooj has been celebrated by Hindus all across the world from past so many centuries. While the festival is celebrated to glorify the love and bonding between a brother and his sister, the festival has a proper origin in Hindu mythology that gave birth to this ritual and festival.
According to a legend, after killing the great demon Narakasura, Lord Krishna went to see his beloved sister Subhadra. On seeing his brother all good, standing in front of her eyes, Subhadra gave Krishan Ji a warm welcome and affectionately applied a ‘Tilak' on his forehead to congratulate him on his victory. Subhadra also served him his favorite food and sweets, and the siblings enjoyed a meal together, cherishing their bond and reminiscing about their childhood.
Since then, on the second lunar day of Shukla Paksha, the Vikram Samvat Hindu calendar, siblings celebrate Bhai Dooj and follow the rituals. This day falls precisely two days after Diwali. Hence we celebrate Bhaidooj every year after two days of the festival of lights. Brothers visit their sister's home on this day and get a warm welcome. Sisters apply 'tilak' on their brother's forehead and offer them, sweets. They and their families have food together, and families, especially siblings, bond during this festival over food.

Any celebration is incomplete without exchanging gifts.

This has to be on the top because, as mentioned above, brothers and sisters bond over their favorite sweets at the Bhai Dooj festival. And if there aren't enough sweets to cherish, there might be a pause in the fun and celebration of the festival. Since it is challenging to find sweets later on the day of festivals, as sweet shops go out of stock quickly, it is safe to order them in advance and keep a stock at home.
