2. Holi—Celebrated by Hindus Around the World

Celebrated around the world by Hindus, Holi is a carnival of colours. A spring festival, Holi signifies the triumph of good over evil. The festivities begin with a bonfire called Holika on the Holi eve and the next morning sees a colour riot. People smear powder or water colours on each other’s face, dance, eat and make merry. The celebration that continues throughout the day is believed to be a day of forgiveness and embrace everyone with love. As they say in Hindi ‘Bura na mano Holi hai’ which means, don’t mind anything, it’s Holi. The festival is not just a feast to eyes but a celebration of togetherness. Don’t forget to get your own colours and don’t even try to venture out in the best of your clothes, hoping not to be coloured.
