It isn’t easy to celebrate every occasion without the presence of family. In particular, keeping siblings apart during Raksha Bandhan, a celebration of siblinghood, seems unfair. But don’t feel sad if you are stuck somewhere else and can’t meet your brother during this Raksha Bandhan. You can still celebrate virtually. Suppose you think a phone or video call is the only way to celebrate rakhi virtually. In that case, we have a list of brilliant ways to celebrate rakhi virtually that will help you plan a day to remember with your dearest siblings. So read on!
Send Online Rakhi
The post-Covid world has seen the emergence of many reward portals. You can send rakhi to your brother via any portal. Many of these gift sites offer free shipping online rakhi delivery orders. These portals also offer free treats like greeting cards, branded chocolates, Bhagavan Rakhi, Roli Chawal, and many more.
Apart from sending physical rakhi via online delivery, you can also opt for electronic rakhi greeting cards. Many gift portals offer personalized Rakhi-E greetings delivered digitally via email and WhatsApp. Your brother can keep these digital gifts forever!
Create and Send Videos
Try to collect all your old photos and prepare a video with a lovely message for the other siblings. It seems like such a sweet gesture that the other siblings might cry with joy and maybe smile when they see all their childhood photos with you.
Play Online Games Together
If the two of you find time for video game duels, there is nothing more beautiful and enjoyable than competing with your sibling overseas and playing video games online with him. The two of you can talk to each other during gameplay, making it feel like you’re sitting in the same room as them. Talk to them about their childhood playing video games after they came home from school. Cherish every moment and make the most of the festival.
Give Them Something Personalized
Remember when we were young and made handmade greeting cards for special occasions? Let’s bring it back but in a modified form. Send your wishes to your loved ones that will brighten up your relationship memory and make the day special.
Spend a Classic Movie Night Together
We know it’s almost impossible for you to spend a movie night together due to the different time zones. However, if you can take time out of your busy schedule and adjust your time zone to watch movies, this would be an excellent idea for a virtual vacation with a powerful package. You can watch Harry Potter movies, children’s movies, and even cartoons by sharing the screen and feeling each other’s presence through technology.
Send Sweets Online
Even if you can’t be physically present with your siblings, you can always send mouth-watering rakhi sweets. If your brother has moved to another country and you cannot arrange a virtual gathering to celebrate rakhi, you will have to send rakhi and sweets to him online.
Order His Favorite Dish
When you are physically present, ask your mother to cook a meal you both enjoy. So why not keep the tradition alive while you’re away by sending each other your favorite treats and desserts for that special day? This gesture shows how well you know your sibling, so order their favorite food and enjoy it on a video call.
There are many ways to feel your brothers and sisters’ love, warmth, and presence in Raksha Bandhan, even if you live miles away. Don’t let distance ruin your yearly vacation. Break all barriers and reduce the distance between you and your siblings by hosting a vast virtual celebration on the day of the festival.
