There is a story behind celebrating this festival Holi. it’s said that long back there was a king named Hiranyakashyap whose son Prahlad was a lover of Lord Vishnu while his father was a robust opponent of Vishnu. Hiranyakashyap wanted to kill his own son because Prahlad had believed Lord Vishnu. Hiranyakashyap wanted his son to call him Lord and to not Vishnu. So he tried to kill Prahlad. King’s sister Holika had a boon of never getting killed by fire so he asked his sister to take a seat in fore with Prahlad on her lap but Prahlad was saved by Lord Vishnu and Holika got killed within the fire. Since then the people of Hindu religion celebrate the festival of Holi with great fanfare per annum as a victory of goodness over evil.
This festival Holi falls on the complete moon day i.e, the Purnima of Phalguna month. Holika Dahan is completed within the evening of the complete moon day where people take in front of the hearth and pray that their internal evil is destroyed the way Holika was killed ablaze . On this occasion, the people become involved in cleaning homes, arranging goods for delicious recipes, delicious foods, and sweets.
