What is Holi?
Known as the festival of colours, all about new beginnings Holi is a Hindu festival that celebrates the arrival of spring, the end of winter, unshakable faith and purity of heart and intent. A joyous two-day event filled with fun on the first day of the festival, a bonfire is lit to symbolically burn away all the bad and give way to a vibrant new future. At the Holi Festival on the second day, friends, family and neighbours meet to celebrate throwing powder dye into the air, covering all in attendance with vibrant colours. The colours are rich with symbolism meaning a vibrant new life, open heart and for some, washing off the dye at the end of the day can mean new commitment to live well, as cleansing oneself of negativity. Holi will begin on Monday March 29th for 2021.
