What is Holi?


Holi is one of the most popular festivals of Hindu culture. It is observed in Nepal and northern India. Another name for Holi is the "Festival of Colors". It is also known as "Boshonto Utshob" which means the "Spring Festival" or Dolyatra (Doljatra) in West Bengal.

Holika Dahan or Chhoti Holi is the name given to the first evening while the following day is known as Holi, Phagwah, Dhulandi, Dhuleti or Rangwali Holi.

The first day, bonfires are lit during the night to remind the cremation of the goddess Holika. The second day, people spend their day throwing water and colored powder. Ranga Panchami is observed later at Panchami, which means the fifth day after the full moon marking the end of the feast of colors.
