    • The Festival of Colors
    • Holi is a festival of colors. It is an ancient Hindu religious festival which has become popular in India, Nepal and some parts of Europe as a Spring celebration of colors.
    • Holi is an important festival to Hindus. It is celebrated at the end of the Winter season which usually falls in March, sometimes in late February.
    • The festival has many purposes. First, it celebrates the beginning of the new season, Spring. Hindus believe it is a time of enjoying Spring's abundant colors and saying good bye to winter.
    • Holi festivities mark the beginning of new year to many Hindus, as well as they reset and renew ruptured relationships and end conflicts from the past.
    • The night before Holi, bonfires will be lit. People will dance and sing around the fire. For the day of Holi, people will play, chase and color each other with dry powder and colored water.
    • At the end of the day, after having fun with coloring people all around the town. In the evening they will dress up nicely then visit their friends and family. It is a national holiday in India.
