Holika Dahan is a Hindu festival that is celebrated the night before Holi, the festival of colors. This year, it will be observed on Tuesday, March 7, 2023. It is celebrated on the full moon day in the Hindu month of Phalguna. Holika Dahan symbolizes the victory of good over evil and commemorates the burning of the demoness Holika by Lord Vishnu. On this day, large bonfires are lit in public places, and people gather around them to perform puja rituals, offer prayers, and sing devotional songs. The burning of Holika is seen as a symbol of the destruction of negative thoughts, emotions, and desires. The ashes collected from the Holika Dahan are believed to have medicinal and spiritual properties and they are applied to the forehead as a mark of protection. Holika Dahan is an important event in Hindu culture and is celebrated with great fervor and enthusiasm throughout India.
