Why is Holi Celebrated?

Lord Krishna turned blue after consuming the poisoned breast milk of demon, Putana. Then Krishna got worried if Radha would like him or not for his skin colour. Lord Krishna’s mother gave an idea to smear the face of Radha with any colour he wants. Then from here the tradition of playing Holi has got evolved. And this day is celebrated as a festival of Colours every year. Holi celebrations begin with Holika Dahan which is celebrated a day before the festival of colours. On this day, people celebrate smearing colours on one another in the streets. While kids play using colour guns and adults play using colours, eggs, tomatoes etc.
Attending events in various locations is one way of celebrating Holi festival. People dance and smear colour to one another at the public events. While people from different countries celebrate in their own styles. It is good to minimize the usage of colours, as the chemical quantity might be high in them.
