Bhaiya-Dooj

The fifth day of Diwali is called Bhaiya-Dooj (or Bhai Dooj), and is a special day for brothers and sisters. Traditionally, sisters draw a tilak (a lucky red dot) on their brother's forehead and make him his favourite foods. He in return checks that his sister is well and happy, and gives her gifts. If brothers and sisters live apart (when they are older), brothers will visit their sisters.
