HOLI_THE RELIGIOUS FESTIVAL OF INDIA

The Holi festival commemorates the victory of good over evil, The festival of Holi is observed almost in every part of India but the traditional Holi celebrations are the biggest at Mathura and Vrindavan near India’s capital New Delhi. People spend the day of Holi smearing colored powder all over & each other’s faces, throwing colored water at each other, having parties and dancing under water sprinklers. Holi is a very carefree festival that’s great fun to participate, if anyone don’t mind getting wet and dirty. Everyone will be saturated in colored water and dirt.
