How To Celebare Holi


How To Celebrate Holi:

Holi is called the festival odd colours. I celebrate holi by spraying colours on everyone and in return they spray colours on me. the below are some of the fun activities which was taken place during the celebration of this colourful event "HOLI".Traditionally, 40 days before the Holi celebration, there would be a log placed in the center of town to signify it was time to collect wood for the Holika bonfire. everyone placed any wood or flammable scrap materials they had on top of the log and they'd end up with a large pile of wood ready to burn. on the evening of holi, place a combustible statue of Holika, the sister of the demon king HiraNYAKashyap, in the pile of firewood. burning Holika in the bonfire symbolizes the triumph of good over evil because she is said to have tried to kill Prahlad the son of HiraNYAKashyap and a devoted follower of lord Narayana.

use a fire starter like kerosene to pour a little on the wood to help get the fire going. light a match and throw it into the pile of wood to start the fire. Make sure to stand far from the wood when trying to start the fire so you don't get hurt.

While you watch the bonfire, chant the Rak shog nA mantras. these mantras are found in the rig Veda, an ancient Indian collection of the Vedic Sanskrit hymns. enjoy the fire by dancing around it and chanting the mantras to ward off evil spirits.

Buy Or Make Colors. the day of the Holi celebration, people celebrate the end of winter and the coming of spring by showering each other with bright colored powder and water. you can buy gulal, which is a natural red-orange color made from the flowers of palash. the flowers are dried and ground to create a  powdered color. you can also buy beer, which is small crystal chips of mica that create a sparkly colored powder.

How To Celebrate Holi With friends And Lovers:


Smear the colored powder on to your friends and family to make them colorful and commence the festival of colors. the colors are non toxic and won't stain so have fun smearing them on your family members' arms ,legs, back, and hair.

A pichkari is a water gun to squirt colored water from as a fun way to celebrate holi. mix some of the colored water and enjoy playing in the bright colors. The women of the town surround the men in the pyramid. they have fun singing traditional holi songs and throwing buckets of water. the women should enjoy singing and dancing around the men in celebration of holi.
