What a lovely Holi Celebration.Holi, is also known as the festival of colours, is a religious occasion celebrated with much pomp. It is considered the second biggest Hindu festival after Diwali. It marks the celebration of the victory of good over evil. The festival falls in the Hindu calendar month of #Phalguniuthiram2022
This year 2022, Holi was celebrated on March 18. The celebrations of the colorful festival are more special for couples who are newly married.
I have learned from other hindusm followers in my circle that the reason why newly married woman should not celebrate Holi at her husband’s house is that Holi is one of the most popular festivals in India and the festival is celebrated with fervor and zeal. The celebrations of Holi begins on the evening of the Purnima (Full Moon Day)
and lasts one full night and one full day.
Especially for a new bride, the festival is more significant as she is going to celebrate Holi with her husband. According to Hindu belief, the bride has to celebrate her first Holi at her paternal home only.
In a multicultural relationship like ours, a personal space is an option for the newly wedded couple to celebrate the first Holi in their marriage. It is significant to do so.
In many Hindu families, the newly married woman celebrates the festival of color at her parent’s home not at her in-law's home. The reason behind this custom is that it increases the love between the newly married couple.
Happiest Year Ahead.
