The vibrancy of colours is something that brings positivity in our lives. Holi gets its name as “Festival of Colours” from the childhood antics of Lord Krishna, a reincarnation of Lord Vishnu, who liked to play pranks on the village girls by drenching them in water and colours.
It is the celebration which marks the arrival of spring and the end of winter. It depicts the blossoming of love, festive day to meet others, play and laugh, forget, and forgive. It is also a time to repair broken relationships. It lasts for a night and a day, starting on the evening of the Full Moon day falling in the Hindu month of Phalguna, which falls around middle of March. This fun festival is predominantly celebrated in India, but some Asian countries carry out the festivities as well as some in the West too.
This year the festivities are expected to take place 28 to 29 March. Of course, due to the pandemic many will naturally postpone their celebrations. But this shouldn’t stop anyone planning for 2022. The Aspiration Group can arrange multiple Indian destinations and the team are able to make the relevant recommendations for the best places to experience the festival. Holi is considered as one of the most revered and celebrated festivals of India and it is celebrated in almost every part of the country.
Holi is a fun festival, carefree and full of laughter. That is if you don’t mind getting wet and dirty. Participating is truly an experience you would not forget in a hurry. You’ll end up saturated in water, with colour all over your skin and clothes. Some of it doesn’t always wash out easily, so be sure to wear old clothes. But if you want to be more adventurous then why not wear all white and see how colourful you really do get? A small tip, it is recommended that you rub hair oil or coconut oil into your skin beforehand, to prevent the colour from absorbing. The vibrancy of colours is something that brings in a lot of positivity in our lives and Holi being the festival of colours is actually a day worth rejoicing.
