Holi Phagwa also known as the Festival of Colors is celebrated every March in Suriname. It marks the victory of good over evil. It is a celebration where people (friends or strangers alike) smeared each other with different colors as a sign of love and belongingness.
In other Hindu tradition, it is a day for leaving the past and conflicts behind. It also signifies the coming of the new season, Spring and people symbolized it as a start of a new beginning.
HOW TO HOLI IN SURINAME:
Wear a white shirt. An old white t-shirt is the best choice. The powder colors are much more visible in white and you won’t regret it if it gets stained. Avoid wearing dark-colored clothes because it is traditionally a sign of unhappiness and Holi is all about fun and joy.
