Fifth day of Diwali

On the fifth and final day of the festival, which is known as Bhayiduj, Bhayyaduj, Bhaubeej or Bhayitika, brothers and sisters meet to express their love and affection for each other. Sisters put a ceremonial mark, usually with vermilion, on their brothers' foreheads and wish them long lives. According to a legend, the tradition began when Yamuna, the sister of Lord Yama, honored her brother with a tilak on his forehead and wished him long life.
