Holi Songs 2018: The festival of colour, Holi is one of the most widely celebrated festivals in our country. Holi is celebrated with much pomp and fervor and is one of the most colourful festivals which is equally enjoyed by people across age-groups. Marked by the victory of good over evil, Holi is also considered to be a festival of thanksgiving to a good harvest. Such is the essence of this festival that people tend to forgive and forget past grievances and look forward to a better beginning by smearing colours and exchanging sweets. Holi is celebrated by smearing of ‘gulaal’, distributing sweets and commemorating the day by gorging on some mouth-watering food. A myriad celebration of colours where ‘age is no bar’, this particular festival is a celebrated affair for the youth and the children who swear by those ‘pichkaris’ and water colours and balloons. And amidst all the mad celebration, Holi is impossible without those foot tapping numbers and a glass of thandai. However colourful your Holi is, those peppy Bhojpuri and Bollywood numbers add an extra spark to the festivities.
