Holi Festival in India

  • Holi, also known as the Festival of Colors, has a long tradition which lies deeply in the Hinduism (a religion that was born in India). During the festival, all 1.25 billion Indian people play outside and splash each other with neon bright paint colors.  Every region of the country celebrates Holi.

    The occurrence of Holi varies every year depending on the Hindu calendar, but it always happens at the end of Spring to signify good over evil, the end of winter and the arrival of spring.   It’s a time for people to play with their friends, laugh, meet others and forgets about any of their worries.

    Anyone and everyone is fair game in Holi, including your mother, your mailman and the strange folks on the street. Some people get so into it that they carry water guns spiked with paint or colored water-filled balloons and drench their friends and enemies.
