Holi is a Indian holiday that heralds the arrival of spring and marks the triumph of good over evil. Holi is also known as the festival of colours and the festival of love.

Beihua University students turned the lawn, outside of dormitory into a circus of vibrant colors Sunday, celebrating the Indian festival of Holi.

The students spent more than an hour tossing powdered chalk. Some laughed and danced to lively music. Others armed with fistfuls of powder, chased friends across the lawn. Students throw coloured powder and liquids at each other.

By the end, all students’ faces, arms and legs were completely doused in a rainbow of colors. The entire student celebrated this festival with joy.

Holi, the festival of colours, is celebrated in the month of Phalgun (February-March). Also called Phagwah, it is the full moon day in Phalgun that ushers in the spring season in India. It is also a celebration of the harvest season.
