Holi is celebrated after the full moon in March every year. In 2019, it falls on 21st March & the Holika Dahan on 20th March. In some parts of India, the festival begins a week earlier. On the day of Holika Dahan Indians worship large bonfires lit to mark the occasion. Holi is celebrated with equal gusto in cities and villages; with music, rain dance with colours.
Why Do We Celebrate Holi?
The festival Holi celebrates the victory of good over evil, especially the burning and destruction of Holika, a demon. All this happened with the help of the Hindu preservation god, Lord Vishnu. Holi got its name as the “Festival of Colors” from Lord Krishna’s childhood antics, who was Lord Vishnu’s reincarnation and liked to play pranks on the village girls by drenching them in water and colours.
Holi is one of the most popular festivals celebrated in India. A people of every age enjoy this festival with enthusiasm and energy. Holi is a Hindu festival which is now celebrated across India with diverse rituals and traditions. On this special occasion, happiness flows all over the streets and lanes.
