Deeply rooted in Hindu mythology, the story behind the origins of this beloved festival is no less fascinating than how it’s celebrated. The most popular legend is that of the tyrannical King Hiranyakaship and his son Prahlad, who was a devout disciple of Lord Vishnu. Having conspired with his sister Holika, Hiranyakaship wanted to kill his son. Holika possessed the special power of being immune to fire but given her evil intentions, her powers did not take effect. This spared Prahlad and instead burned Holika to ashes. This is the reason behind the practice of Choti Holi or Holika Dahan which precedes Holi. In essence, this lively and energetic festival celebrates the triumph of good over evil.

This season, extend your heartfelt wishes and sentiments to your loved ones with our rundown on unique Holi gift ideas. Check out our curated list of presents that will go on to become treasured keepsakes for the vernal season and beyond.
