    • Holi is an annual Hindu celebration that marks the arrival of spring. It is a widely celebrated festival. Holi festival refers to the Festival of colours, which takes place to make the celebration of love, color, fertility and the triumph of good versus evil. The festival is mainly celebrated by Hindus in parts of India and Nepal but people all over the world are taking part in it. The festival of Holi is vibrant and filled with amazing and beautiful colours powder which people throw at each other coating themselves. It is celebrated the day after the full moon, in the month of Phalgun (early March).
      Holi festival is sprinted into two events which are: Holika Dahan and Rangwali Holi. The night before Rangwali Holi takes place, people gather to burn to burn wood and dung cakes as a symbol pyre of good defeat over evil and triumph for true devotees. (In Hindi, god Vishnu helps burn to death devil Holika). Children play pranks and hurl insults to Holika as if they are trying to send away Dhundhi who used to trouble little ones in Prithu. Other people believe in taking embers from the burnt wood to their homes as it is believed to help in rekindling domestic fires.
      The next morning, of course the main course of the Holi festival celebrations. People gather in many public places to take part in Rangwali Holi. The day known as Dhuleti, is the actual day that play of colors takes place. This day, people throw a handful of color powder to each other while chasing each other around and drenching with water. The tradition of holding Puja in not observed on this day because the day is supposed to be filled with pure enjoyment. Other spray colour water on one another using pichkaris and dancing to dholak beat as part of the festival tradition. All this activities happen while people relsh mathri, malpus, gujiya and other traditional Holi foods with great joy and satisfaction. People prepare for this day by collecting firewood a day before.
