Festival of Colors

Spread the love


Every spring since at least the 4th century CE, Hindus have been celebrating Holi, also known as the Festival of Colors in India. The religious holiday welcomes spring with exuberance and joy, rejoicing in the triumph of good over evil. Today, people around the world gather for The Festival of Colors, throwing colored powder into the air and splashing it on their fellow revelers. But what do all the colors mean? Here are some theories: BLUE, the color associated with Krishna, reminds us that evil exists but can be contained through courage and the right actions. GREEN, the color associated with Prince Rama, represents nature and new beginnings. YELLOW, the color associated with Vishnu, represents knowledge, learning, and peace. RED is associated with married women and symbolizes fertility, love, and beauty.
