Holi also marks the time when friends and families come together to celebrate the joy of spring and cherish the festivity that comes with the rendition of spraying colour. Holi is celebrated by many with dancing to songs that celebrate the festival and eating food like gujiyas and drinking thandai.
Holi also fosters unity among people as the festival also includes the tradition of forgiving enemies and letting go past grudges.
The four main colors of Holi in the Google Doodle represent many different things that are in line with the festival. Red stands for love, yellow is the colour of turmeric, which is a powder used as an anti-septic, blue represents the Hindu god Krishna and green symbolises new beginnings with the coming of spring.
Holi signifies fostering brotherhood, unity and a lot of celebration.
The Google Doodle has been designed by Amrita Marino.
