One such country that celebrates Raksha Bandhan with much enthusiasm is Australia. Though the celebrations are not so grand as compared to India but then also the Raksha Bandhan in Australia are special in their own way.

The Rakhi day starts with brothers and sisters getting ready for the Rakhi Puja. The sisters apply the tilak on the brother's forehead and tie the sacred rakhi on his wrist. While doing all this the sister prays for the long life of the brother and in return the brother presents the sister with some nice rakhi gifts. These rakhi gifts are regarded as the symbol of the brother's love for his sister. The day finally ends with the entire family get together.

Some Indian organizations in Australia also arrange for community Rakhi celebrations.
