Holi - A hindu festival celebrated in India in March to celebrate the triumph over evil from the hindu story of the salvation of the hindu god Prahlada and the destruction of the evil god Holika. It is celebrated by throwing brightly coloured chalk at each other as a symbol of joy.
My teacher at UT Elementary celebrate Holy with her classroom and I desperately want to share this celebration with my future students as well. The celebration could be held as a phase 2 or 3. The project could be about India what its like there, why are there all these colors being thrown on people what this celebration means and why people in America should celebrate as well.
#BucketList - Holi, India Also known as the festival of colors and love, this vivid spring festival brings all people together. The social barriers break completely, friend or stranger, rich or poor, men or women, children or elders, Hindu or not, all people come together to celebrate the end of the winter season. And most important to celebrate that everyone is the same!
When Holi first began, certain colors had meaning. Red-Purity, Green-Vitality, Yellow- Pious feeling, Blue- calmness and sedateness. But as time went on, more colors are involved, but have less of a meaning to certain people.
