In the month of March, people around the world celebrate the Hindu festival of Holi, also known as the ‘Festival of Colours’. The origins of the festival can be traced predominately to India and Nepal. For this occasion, Hindu’s light bonfires and cover each other in colours to commemorate the arrival of Spring. In addition to the arrival of spring, Holialso celebrates fertility, colour, love and triumph of good over evil.
Each of the various colours of the powder used during Holi have a symbolic meaning in Hinduism. For example, the colour red represents sensuality, green symbolises life and happiness and the colour white is used to represent purity.
