10 Lines on “Holi Festival”

1. Holi is one of the most enjoyable festivals of north India. Although it is a Hindu festival it is celebrated by one and all. It is held on the full moon day of Phalgun in March or April.

2. It is also known as the ‘spring festival’ for the spring flowers blooms everywhere.

3. In North India, Holi is celebrated with songs, gaiety, and fun and frolic.

4. People throw coloured red powder at each other and enjoy themselves; sometimes it is difficult to recognise anyone at all, for each face looks like a colourful mask!

5. Holi also has a special significance – it is believed that Prahlad, the son of Hiranyakashyap, was a great devotee of Lord Vishnu.

6. His father, who was a demon, asked him to stop worshipping Lord Vishnu.

7. But Prahlad refused, and his father got so annoyed with him, that he asked his sister Holika to sit in a burning pyre and burn up Prahlad.

8. The fire did not harm Prahlad, but Holika died and was burnt to ashes. Thus Holi signifies the victory of good over evil.

9. Holi draws to an end as the sky turns dusky. Then bonfires are lit, and people worship the Holi fire. They sing and dance around this fire.

10. Even though several years have passed since the days of Prahlad, we still celebrate Holi and look forward to this colourful festival each year.
