Holi ~The Festival of Colors~

Holi is an important Hindu festival celebrated in India and Nepal. It is a festival of colors that marks the beginning of spring and marks the end of winter and honors the triumph of good over evil. 
Holi has been celebrated since ancient times and the tradition has been passed down through generations.

The legend behind Holi is that it commemorates the victory of Lord Vishnu over an evil demon named Holika by burning her alive in a bonfire. This symbolizes the victory of good over evil and serves as a reminder to be kind, compassionate and generous towards others. Holi is celebrated with great enthusiasm all over India, with people coming together to sing & dance, revelers cover each other in colored powder "gulal" and water to celebrate . Usually everyone is dressed in white and cover each other in "gulal" and water, people seek blessings from elders by putting colors on their feet.

There is a powerful message the festival of Holi carries. Holi is a strong representation of equality, by adorning each other's faces with colors the skin color of all becomes same and we are equal in all manners.
We all come together as one and there is no room for inequality.
Happy Holi to all!
