Holi is a traditional Hindu festival that is celebrated annually in India and some other parts of South Asia. It is celebrated on the full moon day of the Hindu month of Phalguna, which mainly falls in March.
Holi is celebrated to mark the arrival of spring and the triumph of good over evil. According to Hindu mythology, the festival commemorates the victory of Lord Vishnu’s devotee Prahlada over the demon king Hiranyakashipu, who had tried to kill him several times due to his devotion to Lord Vishnu. The festival also celebrates the love between Lord Krishna and his beloved Radha.
During Holi, people smear each other with colored powder and water and exchange sweets and snacks. It is a time when people come together to forget their differences and enjoy the festive atmosphere. Holi is also an occasion for forgiveness, healing of broken relationships, and new beginnings.
Overall, Holi is a celebration of joy, love, and unity.
