भाई दूज का त्योहार भाई बहन के स्नेह को सुदृढ़ करता है। यह त्योहार दीवाली के दो दिन बाद मनाया जाता है। भैया दूज को भ्रातृ द्वितीया भी कहते हैं। इस पर्व का प्रमुख लक्ष्य भाई तथा बहन के पावन संबंध व प्रेमभाव की स्थापना करना है। इस दिन बहनें बेरी पूजन भी करती हैं। इस दिन बहनें भाइयों के स्वस्थ तथा दीर्घायु होने की मंगल कामना करके तिलक लगाती हैं। इस दिन बहनें भाइयों को तेल मलकर गंगा यमुना में स्नान भी कराती हैं। यदि गंगा यमुना में नहीं नहाया जा सके तो भाई को बहन के घर नहाना चाहिए। यदि बहन अपने हाथ से भाई को जीमाए तो भाई की उम्र बढ़ती है और जीवन के कष्ट दूर होते हैं। इस दिन चाहिए कि बहनें भाइयों को चावल खिलाएं। इस दिन बहन के घर भोजन करने का विशेष महत्व है। इस दिन गोधन कूटने की प्रथा भी है। गोबर की मानव मूर्ति बना कर छाती पर ईंट रखकर स्त्रियां उसे मूसलों से तोड़ती हैं। स्त्रियां घर-घर जाकर चना, गूम तथा भटकैया चराव कर जिव्हा को भटकैया के कांटे से दागती भी हैं। दोपहर पर्यन्त यह सब करके बहन भाई पूजा विधान से इस पर्व को प्रसन्नता से मनाते हैं। इस दिन यमराज तथा यमुना जी के पूजन का विशेष महत्व है
