What Is Holi?
Holi is the Hindu festival of colors. It is celebrated during spring, and reflects the seasons blossoming of vibrant colors and a fresh start. Holi symbolizes new beginnings, forgiveness, inclusiveness, and the triumph of good over evil. It is a special time to celebrate with your family, friends, and loved ones!
How Is Holi Celebrated?
Holi is known for its bright and festive colors. Family, friends, and neighbors throw powdered colors on one another shouting “Holi, hai!” which means “It’s Holi!”. These colors, traditionally made at home from vibrant flower petals, can now be purchased at markets or online.
There is singing, dancing, and lots of flavorful food to be enjoyed throughout the festival. Communities, covered in brilliant colors, come together as one to celebrate and take part in the festivities.
