Story of HOLI ONE
Holi is a spring festival celebrated by Hindus as a festival of colours. It is primarily observed in India and Nepal but also in Bangladesh and Pakistan. It is also known as Phagwah and Festival of Colours.
The festival has many purposes; first and foremost, it celebrates the beginning of the new season, spring. Originally, it was a festival that commemorated good harvests and the fertile land. Hindus believe it is a time of enjoying spring's abundant colours and saying farewell to winter. Although it is the least religious holiday, it is probably one of the most exhilarating ones in existence. During this event, participants hold a bonfire, throw coloured powder at each other, and celebrate wildly. Holi lowers (but does not remove completely) the strictness of social norms. Together, everyone enjoys each other’s presence on this joyous day. No one expects polite behaviour; as a result, the atmosphere is filled with excitement, fun and joy.
