Holi Celebration 

Holi is celebrated at the approach of vernal equinox, on the Full Moon. The festival date varies every year as per the Hindu Calender, and typically comes in March, sometimes February in the Gregorian Calender . The festival signifies the victory of good over evil, the arrival of spring, end of winter. 

Holi is a festival also known as festival of colours, and sometimes festival of love. It is an ancient Hindu religious festival which has become popular with non-Hindus in many parts of South Asia, as well as people of other communities. 

It is primarily observed in India, Nepal and other regions of the world with significant populations of majority Hindus. The festival has, in recent times, spread in parts of Europe and North Americas as a spring celebration of love, frolic and colours. 

Holi celebration takes place with lot of joy and verve throughout the country. The enthusiasm of the people reaches its peak and matches with the nature which is in full bounty at the time of Holi. 

Holi is being celebrated in Indian since time immemorial but the popularity of Holi celebrations seems to be rising with every passing year and so is the level of hoo-ha. As no other festival gives so much liberty to the people to let their hair loose and enjoy their hidden crazy self. 

Holi celebrations start with a Holika bonfire on the night before Holi where people gather, sing and dance. The next morning is free for all carnival of colours. where everyone plays, chases and colours each other with dry powder and coloured water, with some carrying water guns and coloured water-filled balloons for their water fight. Anyone and everyone is fair game, friend or stranger, rich or poor, man or woman, children and elders. The frolic and fight with colours occurs in the open streets, open parks, outside temples and buildings. People move and visit family, friends and foes, first play with colours on each other, laugh and gossip, then share Holi delicacies, food and drinks. In the evening, after having their water fight, people dress up, visit friends and family. It is a national holiday in our country, India.
