What Is Holi Festival of Color?

Holi Festival of Colors is a Hindu celebration for the coming of spring. Also known as Dhuli Vandana in Sanskrit, this festival is one of the biggest tourist-drawers in India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, as well as countries with large Indian population and/or strong influences from the Hindu tradition.
Holi celebrations are observed on the day that coincides with the last full moon of the lunar month Phalguna, usually happening during the later part of February or March. During the festival, people throw colored water and powder at each other, resulting in a colorful mess.
One of the most interesting custom relating to the Holi Festival is the lighting up of bonfires on the eve of the festival (called Holika Dahan or the burning of Holika).
