Holi is one of the oldest festivals of India. The festival plays a very significant role in spreading the message of harmony and brotherhood and in unifying the people across the nation. Holi is the celebration of color and is observed with great fervor. People will throw colored powder and drench each other in colored water in Holi.
On the day of the festival, people get out in the street early in the morning with colored powder, colored water with sprayers and water filled balloons. They throw colors at each other and shout greetings like ‘Holi hai’. The streets, building and people all get painted in gulal (colored powder). In many places processions are held and people sing and dance all the way. The joyous celebration continues till the mid day and in afternoon or evening people visit friends and relatives to distribute sweets and gather for feasts.
