HOLI (sanskrit) – also known as the “festival of colours”, is a spring festival celebrated all across the Indian subcontinent as well as in countries with large Indian subcontinent diaspora populations such as Jamaica, Suriname, Guyana, Trinidad and Tobago, South Africa, Malaysia, the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, Mauritius, and Fiji. It signifies the victory of good over evil, the arrival of spring, the end of winter, and for many, a festive day to meet others, play, laugh, forget, forgive, and repair broken relationships. Holi is an ancient Hindu religious festival which has become popular with non-Hindus in many parts of South Asia, as well as people of other communities outside Asia. In recent years, the festival has spread to parts of Europe and North America as a spring celebration of love, frolic, and colors.
