About Holi: Holi, is an ancient Hindu festival, popularly known as the festival of colours, or the festival of spring. It celebrates the arrival of Spring in India. After the cold winter, the arrival of spring brings abundant colours, the blossoming of love, and allows people to meet, play, laugh, forgive, forget, and repair broken relationships.
Holi is celebrated in the middle of March with playful, colourful festivities where people smear each other with colourful powders and drench each other with water, everyone is fair game, regardless of status, age, or relation. This signifies the ultimate purpose of Holi, which is to bring people together as one, allowing them to feel part of a community of friends, family, and neighbours. The spraying of water signifies the cleansing of one’s aura and energy, to rid oneself of emotional impurities from past errors, egos, and conflicts.
Fun Fact: Traditionally the Holi colours were made using natural pigments from colourful plants, flowers, and herbs with medicinal properties based on Ayurvedic practices.
