Bura na mano holi hai!! Soon the air will be filled with cries of this mass favourite slogan and people will unmercifully be splashed with all kinds of colours. Holi is perhaps the only festival that removes all kinds of a distinction between people. It makes everyone, be it of any religion, gender, background look the same- colourful and happy. Before we get to the topic of Holi gift, first let us know more about the festival.
Did You Know?
Holi is celebrated on the full moon day in the month of phalgun, which either falls on February or March every year. The arrival of the festival means the departure of the winter season. We are all aware of Holika, the sister of demon king Hiranyakashipu and how she tried to burn down his son, the Lord Vishnu devotee Prahalad. But instead of Prahalad, it was Holika who met her death. This event came to be known as Holika Dahan and is celebrated a day before Holi with the burning of woods. But why is it known as the festival of colours? Eventually, to celebrate the victory of good over evil in a grander way, people started playing with colours a day after Holika Dahan.
This festival is not only a revered one here in India but also all over the world. People of Indian origin living abroad have made it well-known to the non-Indians in the country and subsequently around the globe. For people brought up outside India’s soil, the festival holds great intrigue like many things about India does. They, along with their fellow Indians, enthusiastically celebrate the festival of colours, giving another example of how this festival makes all of us come together despite our different backgrounds.
Why Should You Gift on Holi?
Be it Holi or any other festival in India, gifting plays a very important role. Gifts are credited for bringing relations closer and starting a non-spoken conversation between two or more unknown people. Gifts are what make a joyous occasion more celebratory.
