Origin

The Holi festival has its origin in India and it is one of the most cheerful and entertaining celebrations in the whole year.

 For several days, streets are paralyzed and are flooded with color and people covered in color that celebrate the “Color party”, singing and dancing. Some do it to honor the Gods, other to celebrate the triumph of good over evil, the year’s crop or the end of the winter and the beginning of the spring.

The Holi festival is a party that unites the whole population during a few days. Differences and social classes are forgotten. Everyone is the protagonist of a cheerful battle full of color, water and fun.

Even though it is originally from India, lots of countries have already chosen to organize these kinds of events in their streets. Currently multitudinous festivals can be found in different cities around the world; small and big parties, or commemorative, charitable or corporative races, among others.
