Holi is a spring festival also known as the festival of colors or the festival of love. It is an ancient Hindu religious festival which has become popular with non-Hindus in many parts of the world. Today, the festival has spread to parts of Europe and North America as a spring celebration of love, frolic, and colours. At Sri Sri Radha Krishna Temple in Spanish Fork, Utah Holi is celebrated as the Festival of Colors, where thousands of people gather from all over the United States, with non stop live music from great bands, yoga, mantras, dance, cuisine, and the throwing of colors.
It is the festive day to end and rid oneself of past errors, end conflicts by meeting others, a day to forget and forgive. People pay or forgive debts, as well as deal anew with those in their lives. Holi also marks the start of spring, and for many the start of new year.
