Join us in this colorful event on Sunday, March 24th 2019
Each year, Holi is celebrated throughout India, from north to south, and by the Indian communities abroad. This Hindu festival, which marks the end of winter and beginning of spring, is celebrated during the full moon of the month of Phalguna (February-March) for two days. This day, everyone throws coloured powder, signifying the pollen of flowers to celebrate spring. In 2019, Holi will be held Sunday, March 24th. A multitude of colors is needed!
The pigments people throw have a specific meaning: green for harmony, orange for optimism, blue for the vitality and red for joy and love. This is one of the oldest celebrations in India that exists since ancient times.

What is Holi?
Holi is celebrated with particular fervor in Orissa and in the region of Mathura, the city of the appearance of Krishna.
The night of the first day of the festival, a fire is lit to remember the cremation of Holika, a demon burned by Vishnu. The second day, known as Rangapanchami, people dress in white, and with color pigments they throw to one another, then it is customary to apologize after this colorful rite, with “Bura na mano Holi hai” (“Do not be angry, it’s Holi” in Hindi). It is also an opportunity to invite friends and family, to share prasadam, sacred food, prepared especially for this occasion. More info…
