Holi Greetings For Students And Children

Holi is a festival of colors celebrated every year on a full moon day in the month of March (or Phalgun). It is also known as the festival of love, joy, happiness, unity, renewal and triumph. We celebrate Holi with vibrant colors indicating joy, love and happiness to each other. Behind celebrating the Holi festival there is a great reason, legends, beliefs and significance.

A long ago, there was a king, Hiranyakashyap, his sister, Holika and son, Prahlad. Prahlad was a holy spirit and spiritually devoted to God however his father was keen to be worshiped by everyone including his own son as a God. But it was not accepted by the Prahlad and he continued worshiping God. His father was angry with him and planned to kill him by burning in the fire. He asked sister Holika to have Prahlad in her lap and sit in the fire (as Holika was booned by the God to never get killed by the fire). Holika did so but unfortunately she died in the fire and Prahlad was saved by the Lord. This myth had originated the Holi celebration.

People fully enjoy this day by playing colors, meeting and hugging each other, eating tasty foods and other activities. People meet with their near and dear ones, friends, relatives, neighbors and apply abeer to their forehead which shows their happiness to each other. People welcome others at their door step with lots of eating things and colors. In this way, they pass their whole day with lots of fun and joy.
