Holi, the Festival of Colours, is considered to be one of the most revered and celebrated festivals of Nepal/India and is celebrated in almost every part of the country. Holi is also often referred to as the “festival of love” as on this day people unite together, forgetting all resentments and types of bad feelings towards each other, to celebrate as a community. The great festival lasts for a day and a night, starting in the evening of Purnima, or the Full Moon Day in the month of Falgun. It is celebrated with the name Holika Dahan or Choti Holi on the first evening of the festival, with the following day being referred to as Holi. In different parts of the country, it is known by different names.
The vibrancy of colours is something that brings happiness and positivity to our lives, making Holi a festival well worth rejoicing. Holi is a famous Hindu festival that is celebrated in every part of India with utmost joy and enthusiasm. The ritual begins by lighting a bonfire one day before the day of Holi, a process which symbolises the triumph of good over the bad. On the day of Holi, people celebrate with colours with their friends and families and in evening they show love and respect to their close ones.
