Why does Bhadrakal cast a shadow on Raksha Bandhan?
It is generally seen that during every 2 years the festival of Raksha Bandhan is celebrated for 2 days due to Bhadra.

About half of the full moon date remains under the shadow of Bhadrakal. Celebrating the festival of Rakshabandhan in Bhadra is prohibited. Apart from this, the festival of Rakhi is celebrated every other year for two days due to non-synchronization between the full moon date of the Hindu calendar and the dates of the English calendar.
What is Bhadra?
According to mythology, Bhadra is the daughter of Sun God and sister of Shani Dev. Bhadra’s nature is grumpy. When Bhadra was born, immediately after taking birth she started making the whole universe her morsel. In this way, wherever auspicious and auspicious work, yagya and rituals are performed due to Bhadra, there starts to be trouble. For this reason, when Bhadra is observed, no auspicious work is done. According to Vedic astrology, the first half of the full moon date is the Bhadra period, due to which Rakhi is not tied on the day of Rakshabandhan due to the shadow of Bhadra.
