Holi !! Lets celebrate Holi !!

March 28 - March 30

While this celebration is associated most with crowds of people throwing colorful powders on each other. It is actually split into two very different events. Holi is a Hindu spring festival celebrated in February or March in honor of Lord Krishna.

Holi, a traditional festival, celebrates the beginning of spring as well as the triumph of good over evil. It is best known around the world for the powder that revelers throw on each other, leaving festival goers coated in color by the end of the day.

Although the festival originated in India and is still widely celebrated there as a religious festival, it has been adopted in many places around the world.

It is a Hindu festival that marks the arrival of spring season. Known widely as the Festival of Color, it takes place over two days, and is a celebration of fertility, color, and love, as well as the triumph of good versus evil.

People take part in Holi celebrations all around the world, but it is celebrated mostly in parts of India and Nepal. It is often associated with the colored powders that end up coating its participants after they’ve thrown t at each other. But this is just one part of Holi, which is split into two events: Holika Dahan and Rangwali Holi.

Holika Dahan takes place the night before the Rangwali Holi. Wood and dung-cakes are burned in a symbolic pyre to signify good defeating evil (in Hindu Vedi scriptures, the God Vishnu helps burn the devil Holika ( the evil sister of Hiranyakasipu) to death.The burning of Holika is celebrated as Holi. According to some accounts, Holika begged Prahlad for forgiveness before her demise, and he decreed that she would be remembered every year at Holi festival.

In the Braj region of India, where Lord Krishna grew up, the festival is celebrated until Rangpanchmi in commemoration of the divine love of Radha for Krishna. The festivities officially starts in spring, with Holi celebrated as a festival of love. The next morning, people gather in public spaces and take part in Rangwali Holi. This is a raucous affair where people chase each other around, throwing handfuls of colored powders (known as gulal) at one another, while getting drenched in water and have lot of fun.

Lets Celebrate Holi like the best day of your life because it is  and Make sure the kids enjoy the most while learning about our culture and Festivals too. Jai Sri Krishna !!!
