Holi 2018 in Delhi will begin in the evening of Thursday, 1st March & ends in the evening of Friday, 2nd March. The first day known as Chhoti Holi or Holika Dahan and the second as Rangwali Holi, Dhuleti, Dhulandi or Dhulivandan. Holi is celebrated  in the month of Falgun and is also celebrated to give thanks for a good harvest. The festival revolves around smearing colours on each others’ faces, splashing people with coloured water, heartily indulging in sweet delicacies and making merry.

How Holi Celebrated :-

Indians celebrate Holi in various ways – the lathmaar holi in Barsana, the warrior holi in Punjab, the Dol jatra in West Bengal and the Yaosang in Manipur. The consistent theme in the greater part of this is — hues, bliss and an upbeat welcome to spring.

Vrindavan, the land of Krishna’s ‘raas-leela’ with the gopis, is where Holi celebrations start at least a week before the actual festival. Breaking the shackles of tradition, widows started playing Holi with gulal and flowers last year and the tradition continues this year as well.
