Importance And Significance Of Holi Festival

 

What Is The Meaning Of Holi Festival? When & Why Do We Celebrate It?

Meaning Of Holi Festival

Holi is the festival of colours. The meaning of Holi festival is described as the spring festival celebrated across the country to welcome the full moon day in spring or Falgun (February-March). Holi celebrations go on for two days. On day one, it is 'Holika Dahan'' (Holika bonfire) or Chhoti Holi and the second day is Dhuleti, Dhulandi, or Dhulivandan, where people play with colours and share festive recipes. The Holi festival symbolises the conquest of the auspicious over the inauspicious and good over evil. It is also a day to celebrate with your loved ones and family. Holi is regarded as a spring festival in India that welcomes spring after seeing off the season of winter. This year it will be celebrated on Sunday, March 24, 2024

 

During this festival, families meet their near and dear ones and bury the hatches and get into a festive mood. For the farming community, it is as good as Thanksgiving Day because they thank God and pray for a good harvest. Despite being of Indian origin, this festival has significantly become widespread in many parts of South Asia, Europe, and North America. On the first evening of Holi, people celebrate Chhoti Holi, wherein they burn the effigy of Holika, the evil sister of King Hiranyakashipu. She schemed through her to kill her son Prahlad, a great devotee of Lord Vishnu. The next day is all about colours. People celebrate it as Dhuleti, aka ‘Dhulandi’, ‘Rangwali Holi’ or ‘Phagwah’, wherein they smear each other with colours and water.
