Holi – Festival of Colour

On a sunny Spring Friday, Year 3 and 4 celebrated the Hindu Festival of Holi.

This festival welcomes Spring and is usually in March (but better late than never!) Holi is a colourful festival, with dancing, singing, and throwing of powder paint and coloured water. Bonfires are lit and roasting grains, popcorn, coconut and chick peas are thrown on by Hindu families. The next day, people of all ages go into the streets for fun and paint-throwing. Everyone gets involved - with no distinctions between caste, class, age or gender. Hindus have fun by smearing each other with paint, all done in a spirit of celebration.

At Lickhill we embraced the paint throwing part of the celebration and had a fantastic, fun filled afternoon.
