yes they do, actually it has not much of religious of spiritual importance but it is more of celebration of brother-sister bond. Keep in mind that brother-sister does not mean only biological brother-sister. By tieing "Rakhi" (a thread) on hand of brother Sister wishes him a good luck and shows her love towards him. In return brother promises to support and protect her in good and bad times of her life. There are lot of famous historical incidents around this festival. One in more recent times is where a Hindu queen sends "Rakhi" to a Mughal Emperor asking for his help to defend her kingdom against agressor. So you can see it can also serve as uniting 2 different religions.
