Celebrating Holi 2024 Festival: Date, Time, Songs, Dishes, Travel Plans Unveiled


When you hear Holi you think about colours, music and unlimited delicious food. You are certainly right but there is much more to Holi, Holi is the festival of forgiveness, Holi is the festival of love, and Holi is the celebration of music, dance and culture. When is Holi in 2024? is the current question before us, Well this year Holi will be celebrated on 24 and 25 March. The Holika Dahan ritual will be done on 24 March, and the celebration of colours will be on 25 March.

Origin Of Holi

Holi is the celebration of the victory of good over evil, and Holi is the celebration of the victory of Devotion over pride. Holi festival origin story goes like there was a Demon King named Hiranyakashyapu who hated lord Vishnu, as Lord Vishnu was and still is the protector of Everyone. Hiranyakashyapu had a son named Prahalada, as he took birth in an Ashrama he became the biggest devotee ever of Lord Vishnu. Hiranyakashyapu loved his son as naturally every father does but he could not accept that his son is the devotee of his biggest rival.

Hiranyakashyapu tried to kill Prahalad many times but every time he was saved by almighty Lord Vishnu. Hiranyakshyapu got tired and felt helpless as he did not want to kill his son with his hands. 

Hiranyakashyapu had a sister named Holika, she had a boon that no fire could harm her, so she offered to take Prahalad in her lap and sit in the fire, Hiranyakashyapu agreed and she sat in the burning fire with Prahalad in her lap, Prahalad was the biggest devotee of Lord Shree Hari Vishnu so he sat in the lap smiling and just chanting “ OM NAMO BHAGVATE VASUDEVAI” and hence Lord Vishnu saved his favourite Prahalad and Holika burnt to death in the Fire.

Now one may ask if Holika was immune to fire then how she could die in that, that is because boons are to serve people not to be used against them.

Since then Holi has been celebrated as the victory of love and devotion over hate and pride.

How Do We Celebrate Holi In India

Preparation of Holi starts from a month ago,  We do all the cleaning of the house at first. People often wonder How is holi celebrated in India. Well, this blog has all the answers you need to know about the Holi celebration. After cleaning the house we start making Papad( Indian Wafers) of many types like potato wafers, rice wafers, Sago wafers and chips of many types and designs. Then there come the sweets, we prepare Gujhiyas as without this the celebration of Holi will not feel complete. There are multiple types of sweets and salty dishes.

Preparing for Holika Dahan is the most important ritual, There are basic things you need to have to complete this ritual, We take dung cake and body scrub to put it in the Holika Fire which shows the belief that this will keep the evil out of our minds and keep us healthy. 

The scientific meaning of doing Holika Dahan is that we try to purify the air with fire and the elements we put in this. Every festival celebrated in India and rituals related to it are purely scientific and have many meanings.

Things To Plan 

There are n numbers of plans that you need to prepare for. 

1- Colours

Get premium quality original colours and Gulals. Using synthetic colours could harm your skin and give you rashes. Get the original Gulal to celebrate your festival as you do not want to have the after-effects of the colours.

2- Music

Music plays a crucial role in the celebration, as you can not celebrate the festival without music related to the vibe of the festival.

Some of the famous songs of Holi are:

A- Balam Pichkari

B- Jogi ji waah Jogi ji

C- Holi khelen Raghubeera 

D- Do me a favour let's play

E- Holi ke din dil khil jaate hain

F- Rang Barse Bheege 

G- Holiya me ude re gulal

3- Food and Drink

Food and Drink while dancing are very important to keep your strength so that you do not get tired early and enjoy the delicious food. You get to eat many things on Holi and we celebrate Holi for 8 days so we need the energy to maintain enthusiasm and Happiness.
