Celebrated by Hindus every year, on the day of Purnima (the full moon), in the month of Falgun over two consecutive days — the first day of Holi is known as Chhoti Holi or Holika Dahan and the second as Rangwali Holi, Dhuleti, Dhulandi or Dhulivandan. This year, the festival of colours will be celebrated on March 20 and 21.

A symbol of triumph of good over evil, Holi marks the onset of spring and is also celebrated to show gratitude for a good harvest.

On the eve of Holi,a large bonfire, termed as holika dahan, is lit. People gather around the fire known as Chhoti Holi and perform ‘pingpuja’ while praying for the longevity and prosperity of their loved ones.

On the second day of celebrations known as Rangpanchami, people play with colours. It is believed that Krishna used to celebrate the festival with colours at Vrindavan and Gokul.
