The Festival of Colours is a traditional Indian holiday celebrated in our own innovative fashion, adapted to the contemporary Canadian/American scene. In India, Holi announces the arrival of spring and the passing of winter. The festival breathes an atmosphere of social merriment. People bury their hatchets with a warm embrace and throw their worries to the wind. Every nook and corner presents a colourful sight. Young and old alike are covered with colors (red, green, yellow, blue, black and silver). People in small groups are seen singing, dancing and throwing colors on each other.
Holi is celebrated with special importance in the North of India. It solemnizes the love of Radha and Krishna. The spraying of coloured powders recalls the love sport of Lord Krishna and His devotees.
This keeps the Indian Culture alive.
