With its bright flora, its patterned rickshaws, its breath-taking textiles and its never-ending monuments, India could easily be considered one of the most colorful countries on Earth. But, once a year, it becomes even more so with the arrival of the Holi festival of colors to commence spring.
Holi (also known as “the festival of colors” or “the festival of sharing the love”) is a Hindu festival celebrated during spring in India and Nepal. The festival celebrates the arrival of spring and the end of winter, which signifies the victory of good over evil. Holi lasts for two days, starting on Full Moon day (Purnima) and ending in the Bikram Sambat.
