Today we learnt about Holi, which is also known as the festival of colours. It was originally celebrated in North India (where it is a national holiday) but is now celebrated in many parts of the world. It marks the beginning of spring, usually in March. It celebrates Krishna, and the legend of Holika and Prahlad. Hindus believe that Krishna threw water over milkmaids as a child. This developed into the games of Holi. We listened to a story about a boy, Prahlad, who believed in God and God protected him from harm.
