Holi

Written by HCUK Webmaster on . Posted in FESTIVALS & CELEBRATIONS

The festival of Holi is celebrated in early March. Originally a festival to celebrate good harvests and fertility of the land, Holi is now a symbolic commemoration of a legend from Hindu Mythology. Bonfires are lit on street corners to cleanse the air of evil spirits and bad vibes, and to symbolise the destruction of the wicked Holika, for whom the festival was named.
