Holi Festival 2019 (Festival of Colours)

Holi Festival 2019 (Festival of Colours) – : Everybody knows that Holi is known as the Festival of Colors and people celebrate this festival with great enthusiasm and anxiety.

Holi 2019

Holi is a spring festival also known as the festival of colours
or the festival of love. It is an ancient Hindu religious festival. Holi
celebrations start with a Holika bonfire on the night before Holi where
people gather, sing and dance. The next morning is a free-for-all
carnival of colours, where participants play, chase and colour each
other with dry powder and coloured water. People visit family, friends
and foes to throw colours on each other, laugh and chit-chat, then share
Holi delicacies, food and drinks. This is why Holi is given the name
Festival of Colours. The festival signifies the victory of good over
evil, the arrival of spring, end of winter, and for many a festive day
to meet others, play and laugh, forget and forgive, and repair ruptured
relationships.

Jhilmil Holi Colours are carefully produced powders fully loaded with
natural values. Unlike harsh chemical colours, these colours do not harm
the skin or eyes and are infact made with ingredients that are good for
the skin! So everyone can celebrate the festival of colours in the true
traditional way.

HISTORY -: 

Holi Festival 2019 (Festival of Colour) -: Holi was originally a festival to celebrate the start of Spring, good harvests and fertility of the land.

The Legend of Holika and Prahlada

One of the most popular legends is the story of Hiranyakashyap who was a demon king and wanted to be immortal. While he wanted everyone to worship him as god, his son Prahlada was a devotee of Vishnu and this used to offend him. Once he asked his sister, who had a divine shawl that could not catch fire, to sit on raging flames with Prahlad in her lap. But Lord Vishnu, impressed by Prahlad’s devotion, killed both Hiranyakashyap and his sister.
