Why is Holi Celebrated ?
Joy is spread all over as the festival of colors is about to approach. The festival of Holi not just makes us look colorful but also fills colors in our lives. Holi is a day where all distress and rivalries among people are forgotten by coloring each other. It is a day when old or broken relationships can be regained, the day when new relationships are made, the day where all the relationships get stronger. It involves not just a shower of colors but a shower of love as well. The hearts get refreshed with love, the minds get refreshed by removing negatives and bodies get refreshed by the colors and celebrations. It is the where goodness prevails everywhere.
Everybody enjoys celebrating Holi. It is a festival for yound & old alike. Kids make the most of the Holi celebrations. They collect money from the neighborhoods and prepare for the festival weeks before. On the day of Holi, they get dressed up early morning and run around the neighborhood coloring everyone and playing small pranks on people. The youth celebrate the festival of colors by making groups and indulging in activities like “Dahi Handi” (breaking pot of buttermilk which is hung high by making human pyramids), group performances, dramas and dressing up as Krishna to steal butter from houses. The elderly perform fasts and pujas at home. They greet all visitors by applying gulaal on their foreheads.
When Holi comes with so many celebrations then the celebrations also involve gifts. Gifting your friends and family on such a special occasion makes the day even more special. Again as the celebrations are different for different aged individuals, the gifts should also be such that they go in accordance to the people’s likes and dislikes. Finding the right gift for a person is tricky. Just try to gift your special ones with something they have always yearned for, something that they’d like to have. It’s not the price of the gift that matters; rather it’s the feeling of the giver that matters.
The gifts that kids generally love the most are toys. You can accordingly gift elegantly wrapped packs of organic colors, a few pichkaris, water guns, water balloons, colored hats or holi themed masks. This would make the kids joyous enough for the occasion.
The elders of the family would appreciate idols like that of Krishna, Radha or other deities which give an auspicious and divine touch to the festival & is said to bring good luck. You can also make a personalised collection of divine songs, assorted dry fruits, few diyas or a pack of some herbal pesonal grooming supplies/cosmetics.
