Holi, or Holli (Sanskrit: होली), is a Spring festival celebrated by Hindus, Sikhs and others. It is primarily observed in India, Nepal, Sri Lanka and countries with large Indic diaspora populations. The main day, Holi, also known as Dhuli Vandana, is celebrated by people throwing coloured powder and coloured water at each other. Bonfires are lit the day before, also known as Holika Dahan ("burning of Holika") or Chhoti Holi ("little Holi"). Holi is celebrated at the end of the winter season on the last full moon day of the lunar month Phalguna (February/March, Phalgun Purnima).
