Although Holi Festival is originated in India, it has been adopted in many places across the world. This festival of color is still widely celebrated as a religious festival in India.
Holi Festival is celebrated in the day after the full moon in March each year. Moreover, the festival will be taken place a day earlier in West Bengal and Odisha.
There are four main powder colors used to represent different things. Red reflects love and fertility while blue is the color of Krishna; yellow is the color of turmeric and green refers to spring and new beginnings.
People spend the day to carry powders and liquid colors and throw as well as the smear on the clothes and faces of neighbors and relatives.
The tradition of throwing colored powder (also called gulal) during the festival is rooted from the legend of Krishna, whose skin was dark blue.
Totally, it is popular around the world for the powder that travelers throw on each other. Holi Festival leaves the participants a coat in color by the end of the day.
