Holi 2017: The Most Vibrant Celebration in the World

Holi 2017: The Most Vibrant Celebration in the World

This week, Hindus around the world are celebrating the most colorful festival in the world, Holi. The vibrant party is a springtime festival celebrated on the last full moon of the lunar month.

Although Holi is traditionally is a Hindu celebrated festival that takes place in India and Nepal, many cultures around the world have adopted the exhilarating springtime celebration.

While many have seen photos and videos of the brilliant colored powder, or gulal, being thrown into the air, a majority do not know the history or meaning of the Holi Festival. Holi’s celebrations come from many different Hindu legends. One legend tells the story of how the god Vishnu saved his follower Prahlada from a pyre while Prahlada’s evil aunt Holika burned.

The night before the Holi festival, a Holika bonfire is burned to celebrate the victory of good over evil.

As the for the powder, or gulal, thrown during the festival, the purpose derives from the legend of Krishna, whose skin was dark blue. Worried he wouldn’t be accepted by his love Radha, he colored her face to make her look similar to himself. Another reason as to why gulal is thrown is because of its significance surrounding the arrival of spring and all of the vibrant colors it brings.

In today’s modern celebrations, anyone at Holi has a fair chance to be covered in the vividly beautiful powder as a celebration of Krishna and Radha’s love.

Because of its beauty, Holi is one of the most cherished and mesmerizing celebrations around the world, and for good reason.

    My coder is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.

    I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on a number of websites for
    about a year and am worried about switching to another platform.
    I have heard good things about blogengine.net.

    Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content
    into it? Any kind of help would be really appreciated!

    I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.

    I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind
    prior to writing. I’ve had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting
    my thoughts out. I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or
    tips? Thank you!
