Translated as the “Festival of Colors,” Holi is a traditional holiday celebrated by Hindus and Sikhs. Holi festival has an ancient origin and celebrates the triumph of ‘good’ over ‘bad’.  It is a socio- cultural festival during which a wide range of colors are smeared over each other as a mark of love and belongingness and to welcome the spring season.  It is a celebration of Radha’s love for the Lord Krishna. Radha applied colors to her skin to usher in the spring, a season of love, prosperity and abundance.  ATTENDANCE VERIFICATION WILL BE PROVIDED FOR THE HOLI FESTIVAL!
