Holi is one of the biggest festivals celebrated by the Hindus. It is a two-day festival. On the first day, in the night Holika Dahan takes place where a heap of wooden planks is burnt as a symbol of burning Holika.
According to Hindu mythology, Holika was the evil creature who wanted to kill Lord Vishnu's devotee Prahlad and he was saved by Lord Vishnu as he burnt Holika alive. This day is celebrated as the symbol of burning all the evils of the society and also the demons present inside an individual.
The next day is known as Dhulandi which is a celebration of the victory of good over evil. This day is celebrated by putting colours over each other. Here are a few Holika Dahan wishes to celebrate the occasion right with your family.
Hey Lord Vishnu! as you saved your devotee Prahlad from the evil Holika, the same way we pray to you to save our family and friends. May Lord Vishnu answer all your prayers today. Happy Holika Dahan 2020
Today on this day of Holika Dahan, I wish to burn all my grudges and grievings. Let's make a colourful start with this Holi. Happy Holika Dahan to you and your family.
