Holi Hai!

Mar 25, 2024

Holi is all about new beginnings. It welcomes the spring season and celebrate the end of winter season.

Holi falls on a full moon every year and is celebrated for two days. The first day if Holika Dahan when a bonfire is lit for a puja (prayer). The bonfire is for cleansing and meant to burn away all the bad and evil.

The second day is all about colors!

The day of the color fest typically doesn't involve a religious ceremony. It's purely about having fun within your community by throwing colors at each other!

Some history

One of the stories associated with Holi is the story of Radha and Krishna. Krishna's skin turned blue as a baby when He drank poisonous milk from a demon, according to Hindi legend. Krishna fell in love with Radha, but was worried that Radha would not feel the same way because of His skin. Radha let Krishna apply color to her skin and they became a couple.

That's why on Holi, we apply color to each other's skin.

Each color symbolizes something

  • Blue is for Krishna due to his skin
  • Green is symbolic of rebirth and new beginnings.
  • Red is the color of marriage and can symbolize matrimony or fertility.
  • Yellow, the color of turmeric, is often used on auspicious occasions.

Holi is a celebration that brings people together in the spirit of joy, unity and hope. It is a reminder to embrace the colors of life, let go of negativity and cherish new beginnings.

Wish you all a very Happy Holi!
