- The Festival of Colours, also known as the Festival of Holi is a celebration where scented powder and perfume is thrown at each other to represent the coming of the Spring Season which brings life, colours and great harvest that has originated in India and is celebrated around the world.
- One of Holi’s biggest customs is the loosening strictness of social structures, which normally include age, sex, status, and caste. Holi closes the wide gaps between social classes and brings Hindus together. Together, the rich and poor, women and men, enjoy each other’s presence on this joyous day. Additionally, Holi lowers the strictness of social norms. No one expects polite behavior; as a result, the atmosphere is filled with excitement and joy.
- CCEL and Canadian College would like to invite its students and celebrate this culture filled event with colours, ethnic food, music, and an opportunity to experience a different culture!
