The Spring Festival of India, Holi - is a festival of colors. It is meant to welcome the spring and win the... blessings of Gods for good harvests and fertility of the land. Holi is celebrated over two days. This festival is associated with a loosening of social restrictions normally associated with caste, sex, status and age. Holi is thus known to bridge social gaps and bring people together. It is also known for the loosening of social norms and licentious merrymaking and jovial behavior. The main ritual of Holi is to throw and apply colored water and powders on friends and family. Thus the name, "Festival of Colors."
