One thought on “Holi festival in India

  1. Holi Festival is celebrated in India. It marks the coming of Spring in March. Some families will celebrate in more of a religious way, but for others Holi is more like a time for fun.

    Holi is a colourful festival, it includes: singing, dancing, and throwing coloured powder or coloured water. Bonfires are lit and roasting grains, pop corn, coconut and chick peas are thrown on by Hindu families.

    Days before Holi, the markets get flooded with colour powder. It is such a colourful and joyful sight to watch, huge piles of bright red, pink, green and blue every where on the streets. Buying those colours seems as you are bringing joys and colour to your home and into your life.
