The Celebration of Unity and Brotherhood


The Holi festival might be about the arrival of spring, but it also is about bringing people together. During the festival, there is no distinction of status, cast, class or sex. While people are smearing various colors of gulal on each's faces, everyone is participating to bring forth a prosperous spring.

The date on which Holi lands on varies from year to year because of the Hindu calendar. Last year, Holi was on March 6. In 2017, Holi will be on March 13.
