When you hear the word "Holi," you are bound to get a mental image of the skies exploding in bursts of color, people dancing to loud music, and dousing each other in the vibrantly coloured water. The festival of colors is a spring festival that is held on the last full moon of the lunar month called Phalguna. Holi is celebrated on a different day every year as its dates are determined by lunar cycles. Before we jump into the best Holi outfits you can wear on this colorful day, let’s deep dive into the roots of its significance.
Holi: The Celebration of Love and the Victory of Good over Evil
This ancient tradition celebrates the victory of good over evil and marks the end of the winter season. The origins of Holi are considered to be a combination of several Hindu myths. In one of these stories, Prince Prahalad defeats his evil aunt, the wicked Holika. A whole other scene depicts the blue god Krishna painting the goddess Radha to be as colourful as him. Holi is a fusion of stories, no different from the swirling arrays of colours that fill the streets on this day. TheHoli festival is ultimately a religious celebration of love as well as the triumph of good over evil.
This two-day festival of colours is primarily celebrated in India and Nepal. However, in the past few years, people belonging to several other religions and cultures have started to appropriate Holi and rejoice in the practice of throwing a handful of coloured powder on their friends and family. Many people from across the world consider associating this festival with a gigantic paintball fight that includes chalky, bright powder thrown all around them. Along withHoli wishes, people also give each other sweets and play with colours and water with all their hearts.
