Holi is a Hindu spring festival commonly celebrated in India and Nepal.  It’s also known as the “festival of colours” or “the festival of love“.  The festival represents the victory of good over evil, the arrival of spring, the end of winter, and a festive day to meet people, laugh and play, forgive and forget, and repair broken relationships.

It is also celebrated as a thanksgiving for a good harvest.  It lasts for two days starting on the Purnima (Day of the full moon).  It usually occurs somewhere between the end of February and the middle of March if you’re using the Gregorian calendar.

Holi is an ancient Hindu religious festival which has gained popularity with non-Hindus in many parts of South Asia, as well as other parts of the world outside of Asia. Recently, it has reached parts of North America and Europe.

A festival to forgive and forget?  I think I’m okay with that.
