Holi

Holi is one of the most famous and highly awaited festivals in India due to its several deep significances and excitements. Holi is one festival that is celebrated almost in every part of the country and even abroad where there is a sizeable Indian population. Also called as the festival of love, Holi enjoins people forget their differences and come together in a bond of love. The core of Holi celebrations last for a day and night. The celebrations of Holi start in the evening of the Full Moon day of the Falgun month (February – March).

Holi celebration preparations

Holika dahan is a ritual that happens during the first evening of the Holi festival. During this time, an effigy of an ogre called Holika is burnt in the fire. Holika was the sister of Hiranyakasipu, the demon who attempted to kill Prahlad at the behest of her brother because Prahlad was devoted to Lord Vishnu, whom Hiranyakasipu considered as his enemy. Nevertheless, the grace of Lord Vishnu saved Prahlad from the fire and subsequently from all other dangers at the same time killing.

Festival of colours

Holi is the festival of colours.  The vibrant colours that we see around us on Holi are believed to help infuse the element of variety, prosperity and positivity in our lives. The theme of Holi is the celebrating the victory of good over the evil. During Holi celebrations, families come together. They exchange love, gifts, sweets and a lot of fun activities. People spray colours on each other and get wet on the day to play and make the most of the day in their own ways.
