Holi is a popular Hindu festival celebrated and known as the Festival of Colours, Love, and Spring. It celebrates the eternal and divine love of the deities Radha and Krishna. The day also signifies the triumph of good over evil, as it commemorates the victory of Vishnu as Narasimha over Hiranyakashipu.

Holi originated and is predominantly celebrated in the Indian subcontinent, but has also spread to other regions of Asia and parts of the Western world through the Indian diaspora.

The Holi Festival itself is wild: think big crowds, colored dye, water guns, music, dancing, and partying. During the Holi Festival, people dance through the streets and throw colored dye on each other. The Holi Festival is a happy time when people come together as one and let go of their inhibitions representing the playful love and affection that Radha and Krishna once shared.

One of the most widely used hues at the Holi celebration is pink. This bright hue is often associated with feelings of love, affection, and happiness. It also represents the colour of in-bloom flowers. Each color carries a meaning. Red symbolizes love and fertility; yellow is the color of turmeric, a powder native to India and used as a natural remedy; blue represents the Hindu God Krishna; and green is for new beginnings.
