Happy Rakshabandan! I didn't know that you tie rakhis to nephew and Sil. I always thought rakhis are for brothers and sisters! Thanks for stopping by!

Interesting tradition. I looked it up on Wikipedia and understand it is a sacred thread the sister ties to her brother signifying he will protect her. And it it always on a full moon♫♪
