HOLI

Holi is a popular and colourful festival. It is great fun for the boys.

They light huge bonfires. They spray coloured water or throw coloured powder on one another. Some throw coins into the bonfire.

This festival is celebrated on the full-moon dav of Phalgun.

Here are some stories about Holi.

Long, long ago, there was a demoness called Holika. She was very wicked. God Krishna killed her. As she was dying, she asked Krishna, "Will you celebrate this day as a festival ? "

God is kind even to the wicked when they repent. So Krishna granted her request. This is the day we celebrate as the Holi festival.
