Holi: (Brief Essay)

Holi is one of the major festivals of our country. Holi is also known as the:

• Festival of Love
• Festival of Colors

Holi falls in the month of Phalgun on a full moon day. The celebration generally falls in the month of March (sometimes in the month of February). The festival signifies the beginning of spring season. Holi is also considered as a Thanksgiving for a good harvest.
Holi is a festival that is considered as a day where people forget, forgive, make up broken relationships and got back to the happy world again. On this happy day, people spray colors on each other and play games. By spraying colors people have fun and forget all their worries.

The legend of Holi goes back to the ages of the Demon King Hiranyakashyap. He, on a wild effort to make his son worship him, instead of Lord Vishnu, made his sister Holika to go into a blazing fire with Prahaladha. Holika had a boon that she can be immune to fire. While going into the blazing fire with Prahaladha, Holika turned into ashes but Prahaladha was saved by Lord Vishnu. (Holika’s boon will work only if she entered the fire alone)

Time since this legend, people all across India celebrate this day as Holi signifying the victory of good over evil. People light a bonfire during this festival indicating the death of Holika. After a day full of excitement, people spend evenings with friends and relatives by exchanging sweets and greetings. It is believed that Holi induces the feeling of brotherhood in the minds of everyone and even enemies become intact on this day.

Holi is also celebrated in some South Indian cities where North people live in large amount.  They gather with families and friends to celebrate.
