Holi is a spring religious festival celebrated by Hindus.
The main day, Holi, also known as Dhuli Vandana in Sanskrit, also Dhulheti, Dhulandi or Dhulendi, is celebrated by people throwing coloured powder and coloured water at each other. Bonfires are lit on the eve of the festival, also known as Holika Dahan (burning of Holika) or Chhoti Holi (little Holi).
Holi is celebrated at the end of the winter season on the last full moon day of the lunar month Phalguna (February/March).
