Hailed as the festival of colours; Holi is a religious celebration filled with fervor and charm.
Holi marks the welcoming of a new spring season and many Hindus celebrate by wildly throwing scented powder and perfume at each other, a tradition rooted in Hindu mythology.
On the eve of Holi, bonfires are lit in memory of the miraculous escape that young Prahlad accomplished when a demon princess named Holika attempted to lead Prahlad, to his death. The bonfires religiously symbolize the victory of good over evil.
A public holiday in India, feel free to celebrate with the millions of Hindus from around the world by getting painted!
