Celebrated since ancient times, Holi has historically represented the end of winter and the start of Spring. The ‘festival of colors’ is celebrated with loved ones by applying colors, relishing succulent delicacies and creating large community bonfires. It represents the final victory of good over evil and is a festival that welcomes all.
