Holi is the festival of colours, which represents the triumph of good over evil and is celebrated every year, especially in India.
As per mythological history, the cultural festival is recognized as the wining of good over evil. Hirankashph, a renowned king, have been survived by a kid named Prahlad, who was a great worshiper of God Shiv.
He was always busy worshipping Lord Shiva, but this was not accepted by his father. His father always thought that he was a god and his son had not worshipped him.
But Prahlad has never accepted this and always worshipped Lord shiva. So, in the rage of anger, he called his sister named Holika, who had been gifted by God that she will bever be brunt.
So, that’s why she took up Prahlad and sat on the laps of fire and got burnt. Prahlad left unburnt as he remembered God every time.
This is the reason that people celebrates Holi by remembering Prahlad and his worship.
The festival is prominent mostly in India and among the Hindu community. People celebrated Holi by pouring different-different colours on each other. So, the festival is especially known as a festival of colours.
