The Hindu festival of Holi

9th and 10th March 2020

Growing up in a diverse and unique world is very important to us at Toddletown to embrace and encourage the differences we all possess. Throughout the year our children will get to experience a wide variety of cultural, religious festivals and celebrations.

Holi is a popular Hindu festival it is celebrated predominantly in India and Nepal but has also spread to other areas of Asia and parts of the Western world. Holi is celebrated to mark the end of the winter month in March once the full moon has appeared. It is commonly known as the festival of colours, where people enjoy splashing each other and playing with liquid colours from the morning utill late afternoon. In the evening the elephant festival begins, where elephants are decorated with jewels and embroided clothing.
