Holi is celebrated all over India and Nepal as the beginning of spring. On this day, people hug and wish each other “Happy Holi,” signifying the victory of good over evil, the arrival of spring, end of winter and, for many, a festive day to meet others, play and laugh, forget and forgive and repair broken relationships.
Holi normally lasts for two days starting on the full moon day, which falls somewhere between the end of February and the middle of March in the Gregorian calendar.
Come bring the little ones out to jam to some music with Ragakids as they sing songs of celebration in English, Bengali and Hindi!
