The day after full moon in March each year, thousands of Hindus participate in the religious Holi festival. Holi festival has an ancient origin and celebrates the triumph of 'good' over 'evil'. It welcomes the beginning of spring, commemorating good harvest and fertile land. Hindus believe it is a time of enjoying spring's abundant colours and saying farewell to winter. On this day, people hug and wish each other 'Happy Holi'. Participants will traditionally hold a bonfire, throw coloured powder at each other, and celebrate wildly.

Now this festival is having a strong influence on other cultures around the globe. Although to them it is not religiously significant, it is merely an excuse to have a good colour filled party. And there is lots of colour. Everywhere.



This festival is a pleasant and cheerful festival, which is great fun to participate in, that is, if you don't mind getting wet and dirty. Make sure to wear old clothes because you'll be sure to end up with coloured powder all over your skin and clothes.

This Festival of social merriment is due to hit London on the 10th and 11th August which will include a fantastic line up of music to get the party going. The Festival is to take place at Battersea Power Station. Due to popularity the tickets for Holi Festival of Colours London on 10th August are already sold out, however there are still a few tickets left for the 11th August. So if you are keen to join in the fun and have an excuse to cover people in coloured powder, then book your tickets soon.

You can also follow the Holi Festival of Colour Facebook page.

If wishes come in colours, this festival would be a rainbow.
