Holi is considered as one of the most revered and celebrated Hindu festivals of India and it is celebrated in almost every part of the country. It is also sometimes called as the “festival of love” as on this day people get to unite together forgetting all resentments and all types of bad feeling towards each other. The great Indian festival lasts for a day and a night, which starts in the evening of Purnima or the Full Moon Day in the month of Falgun. The vibrancy of colors is something that brings in a lot of positivity in our lives and Holi being the festival of colours is actually a day worth rejoicing. On the day of Holi people play with colours with their friends and families and in evening they show love and respect to their close ones with Abeer. - Holifestival.org


Join us this Holi by decorating your windows with paper flowers and your doors with balloons! We'll have materials at the Community Center for you to pick up!
