How can a Single Child Celebrate Raksha Bandhan?
Having a cool sibling by your side is amazing! They are always there to make you feel special and to have fun with you. From sharing the pizza to fighting for the last bite of the cake, from saving each other in the school to hiding the TV remote, the siblings bond is filled with a lot of memories. But, not everyone is blessed with a sibling and if you are a single child, then you might not relate much to all these memories. Raksha Bandhan is generally just another day for single children. While many sisters are busy buying kids rakhi or personalised rakhi, etc. for their siblings, some sisters are just scrolling through their social media feeds. Many brothers are in search of return gifts for their sisters, but some brothers are simply busy with their normal life as there is no excitement of this special festival. Well, if you are a single child and have no siblings to celebrate the festival with, here we are to provide you with the best ideas to celebrate the festival and to brighten your day.
Celebrate the Day with your Forever Friend
You can celebrate the day with your best friend or forever friend by tying him/her the sacred rakhi thread. After all, the Rakhi thread signifies protection and your friend has always supported you and is there for you when you need him/her. So, take your bond to the next level by tying them rakhi.
Party with Parents
Parents are there for you and have never let you feel the absence of a sibling. They have always been there for you by your side and have shaped you to be an amazing person. So, how about celebrating the Raksha Bandhan festival with them. Eat some delicious sweets and have a small party at the rooftop to celebrate the special day.
Celebrate with Soldiers Protecting us at the Border
You can visit your nearby local military or army forces office to celebrate the Raksha Bandhan festival. Many girls visit there to tie the sacred Rakhi thread on the soldier’s wrist as they are the ones who are protecting us from external evil forces. You will really feel amazing by celebrating the festival with the army forces.
Binge Watch Netflix
Netflix is the perfect cure to your problem. While everyone is busy celebrating the Raksha Bandhan with their siblings, you should get going with your pending must watch TV series. Finish off the episodes alone with the company of some snacks and desserts. If you have some friends like you, you can invite them over as well.
Adopt a Pet
You are missing a sibling buddy, right? Bring in a dog or cat or any other pet animal to your house and he/she will be there with you to enjoy and have fun times. You will surely have some great time with them.
So, these were the ways by which you can celebrate the Raksha Bandhan festival. Apart from these, you can also go on a solo trip to have some amazing time. You surely don’t have siblings but you have much more than that in the form of your friends, parents, and other people in your life. Happy Raksha Bandhan!
