Holi Celebrations

A spring festival lasting one to five days. Bonfires are lit and coloured powders and dyes are thrown over people

Various stories are associated with the festival. Hindus remember the story of Lord Krishna, a form of God. When he was young, Krishna loved to play tricks and have fun. Krishna, his friends and his relatives used to throw coloured water over each other.

Another story associated with Holi is that of Prahlada and Holika. Prahlada survived when his aunt, Holika, supposedly immune to fire, held him in her arms while she sat on a bonfire.
