This is one of the most exuberant festivals and also the most colorful. It heralds the advent of spring and the end of winters. It is celebrated by throwing colored water and powder at each other. On the eve of Holi, bonfires are built to symbolize the destruction of the evil demon Holika. The tradition of the Holi is that even the enemies turn friends on Holi and forget any feeling of hardship that may be present.
It is believed that all sorts of fear can be conquered by doing Holika Puja on Holi. Holika Puja bestows power, prosperity and wealth. It is believed that Holika was created to ward off all sorts of fear. Hence Holika, although a Demoness, is worshiped along with Prahalad before Holika Dahan.
