THE ORIGINAL DATE OF THIS EVENT 3/14/20 WAS CANCELLED ON 3/10/2020 TO AVOID THE RISK OF CORONAVIRUS.
I HAVE MOVED THE DATE TO 3/13/2021.
Dear culture-oriented adventurers:
Another cultural event that I would like to share with others. I contacted the organizer and I was confirmed about the date. The first time I joined a Holi festival was as an invitation from an Indian friend of mine. I came home with color powder all over my head and my clothes.lol While in the festival, you might as well enjoy it, dance and mingle.
I AM NOT THE ORGANIZER. NIACA Holi at Yugul Kunj is. They have a Facebook page. Please feel free to look them up if you have any specific questions.
As the master of your own living choices, if you choose to go there, please just enjoy yourself. I am not hosting this one like the other cultural events at the Buddhist temples. Whether you sign up, sign off, are late or cancel the last minute, this meetup does not monitor all bad habits or behaviors. Make sure you keep the peace because there will be law enforcement all over the place. haha . Please have fun.....yeah!!!!
When is Holi?
The Hindu festival of Holi is celebrated on the last full moon day of the Hindu lunisolar calendar month, which usually falls in early March.
Holi is also known in some states as Doljatra, or Dola Purnima. In Nepal, it is known as Fagu Purnima. It is also a public holiday called Phagwah in the South American countries of Guyana and Suriname. The day before Holi is known as Holi Dahan and can be a holiday in some states.
History of Holi
Holi was originally a festival to celebrate the start of Spring, good harvests and fertility of the land. The first mentions of it date back to a poem from the 4th century. Holi was described in a 7th century Sanskrit play called "Ratnavali," written by the Indian emperor Harsha.
Today it is better known as a symbolic commemoration of a legend from Hindu Mythology.
