There is a great story of Prahlad behind celebrating the holi. Once Prahlad (who was a great devotee of God) was tried to be killed by his own father as he denied to worship his own father in place of God. His aunt, Holika, sit in the fire by keeping him in her lap on the order of Prahlad’s father but he was saved by the God as he was a true devote. And Holika burnt in the fire even after she was booned by the God to never get harmed by the fire.

A day before colourful holi, people burn a heap of woods and co-dung cakes in the night in the myth of burning Holika to remember that day. Some people follow the special ritual of burning the waste of sarson ubtan massage of each family member in the Holika in the myth that doing so would remove all the evil power from the house and the body and bring happiness and positive power to the home.

It is the festival of lots of fun and frolic activities especially for the children who take part in the celebration a week before and lasts a week after the date of Holi festival. Holi festival is celebrated by the people of Hindu religion all over the India especially in North India in the month of March.

There are many stories and legends behind celebrating the Holi in India for years. It is the festival of great importance and significance. According to the Hindu mythology, it is considered as Holi celebration was started a long ago from the ancient time when Holika was burned in the fire while trying to kill her own brother’s son in the fire. It is considered as there was a demon king called Hiranyakashyap, father of little Prahlad. He had tried to kill his own son in the fire when Prahlad denied to worship his father as Prahlad was a great devotee of the Lord Vishnu. When Hiranyakashyap failed in many of his strategies to kill Prahlad, he ordered his own sister, Holika to sit in fire by having Prahlad in her lap as she was booned by the God for never getting harmed by the fire.

However, this strategy was also became failed as little Prahlad was the devotee of the Lord Vishnu and he was saved by his God. Holika was died in the fire and Prahlad was saved. From that day, people of Hindu religion started celebrating the Holi festival every year. In the evening of a day before the colourful Holi, people make a heap of woods and co-dung cakes on the cross roads and do fire in the heap in the myth of burning Holika and celebrate Holika Dahan ceremony. Some people make round and round of the burning Holika and worship to get blessed with the prosperity and good health by burning all the sins and diseases in the fire. There is also a tradition in Hindu religion of burning wastes of the whole body massage with mustard seed paste in the fire in the myth of burning all the skin problems and get good health for the whole year.

In the next morning of the Holika Dahan, people celebrate a colourful Holi by getting together at one place and on the roads. Colourful Holi preparations start a week before the main date of the Holi festival. People become highly enthusiastic especially children of the home who starts buying different colours a week before the date.
