The great Indian festival is celebrated for a day and a night. It generally starts in the evening of Purnima or the Full Moon Day in the month of Falgun. This Hindu festival rejoices with the name Choti Holi or Holika Dahan just before the day of Holi. It is celebrated with different names in different parts of the country. 

Holi is a festival that brings a lot of positivity to our lives. It is a popular festival which pushes the boat out in the different corner of India with extreme enthusiasm and joy. On this day, people play with colours with their families and friends in the morning and noon and by evening, they show love and respect to their close ones with Abeer/Gulal.

History

It is believed in the Hindu religion that a devil king named Hiranyakashyap had a son named Prahlad and a sister called Holika. The devil king Hiranyakashyap had the blessings of Lord Brahma that no man, weapon, or animal could kill him. This blessing turned into a curse for him and he became egotistic. As a result, he ordered his kingdom and his own too to worship him instead of God.

In response, all the people of the kingdom began worshipping Hiranyakashyap except his son, Prahlad. He refused to worship his father because he was a true lover of Lord Vishnu. With this disobedience, Hiranyakashyap planned with his sister to kill Prahlad. He made her sit in the fire with his son on the lap, where Holika got burned and Prahlad came out safe. It is said that Prahlad Lord Vishnu saved Prahlad. Hence, people started celebrating Holi as the victory of good over evil.
