There’s a whole bunch of awesome stuff behind the scenes that makes Holi extra special! Let’s dive into the heart of Holi and discover the fun together!”

Holi is a popular Hindu festival celebrated primarily in India and Nepal, although its popularity has spread to many other parts of the world. It is known as the “Festival of Colors” and is celebrated on the full moon day(Purnima) in the Hindu calendar month of Phalgun, which usually falls in February or March in the Gregorian calendar. 

The festival holds significant cultural, religious, and social importance. It marks spring’s arrival, winter’s end, and good over evil’s victory. People celebrate Holi by throwing coloured powders and water at each other, singing and dancing, exchanging sweets, and sharing goodwill.

In 2024, Holi, the colourful festival, will be on March 25th! It happens on the first day after the full moon(Purnima) in the Chaitra month. If the first day lasts two days, the first one is called Dhulandi, our Spring Festival!

Holi isn’t just about colours; it’s also about welcoming spring! Whether we’re lighting bonfires or throwing colours, it’s all about having fun. In Haryana, it’s called Dhulandi, and it’s famous all over India! This festival is full of stories about winning, starting new things, and enjoying life!

Importance of Holi

Holi, the festival of colours, isn’t just big in India; it’s a global party of fun and happiness! People come together to meet friends and family, leaving behind any hard feelings. They splash colourful powders on each other, spreading love and joy. They also share delicious food, filling hearts and stomachs with warmth. That’s why Holi is like a magical reset button for friendships. Plus, there’s music everywhere, adding to the festive vibe!

In ancient tales, Holi’s first day celebrates the triumph of goodness over evil. It’s about Prahlad, a big devotee of Lord Vishnu, who beat Holika, the sister of the demon king Hiranyakashyap and aunt of devotee Prahlad. They light a bonfire to remember this victory. The next day, everyone enjoys special food and colours. These customs are super important in Holi!
