Sample Answer of Describe an Interesting Tradition in Your Country.
India is a country of various customs and traditions. I love to take part in almost all festivals. Because it always includes delicious food and fun. On this specific occasion, I’d like to talk about Rakhi. It’s also known as rakhi or Raksha Bandhan. Rakhi is a Hindu tradition and basically celebrated in north India however, many Sikhs also celebrate this.
It’s celebrated on the full moon of savan i.e. august. On this day sister tie a thread on her brother’s wrist as a reminder of his responsibilities toward his sister. In return, he gives her gifts such as clothes, jewelry, etc. The types of rakhis vary and depend upon culture and monetary value. Some sisters tie rakhi made of precious metals such as silver or golds as well. But in the end, Like every other tradition, rakhi is also had great importance. If the sister is married she would visit her brother’s house to celebrate. This is a great occasion for family reunions and get-togethers. IELTS-Fever Facebook Page
This occasion is a symbol of love and care between brother and sister. I also have a younger brother and we used to celebrate rakhi since childhood every year. My aunt used to come to our house to tie rakhi along with two cousins. We danced a lot and ate homemade sweets. But since I’m here in Canada and I didn’t see him in the last three years Rakhi doesn’t remain the same for me. We used to have so much fun and I miss those golden days.
