The festival gets it’s name from the destruction of the demon named Holika. She tried to help her brother kill his son, her nephew, Prahlad. She wore a special cape that protected her from fire and then sat in a bonfire and called for her nephew to some sit on her lap. Prahlad was a great devotee of Lord Vishnu and the Lord made Holika’s special cape fly off her to and wrap Prahlad safely. Thus Prahlad was saved while Holika burned to death. Some people keep bonfires on Holi to symbolise her destruction and the destruction of all the negative influences in their life.
Colour is another tradition of Holi. People use powder colour or coloured water to play with each other by colouring each other or indulging in a water war.
It’s a day traditionally spent celebrating with family or friends and, though it’s usually best to wish them in person, with colour and your phone tucked away in a safe waterproof place, sometimes that is not possible. For that situation, here are some wishes to message them or to put as your status on Facebook, Whatsapp or any other social media.
