Holi, we all know how beautiful the celebration is and the joy of splashing colours on our friends and families to spread happy vibes. 

The festival is known for the beautiful colours and the fun behind playing with colours and ending up with nice tasty food. So, here the colours and the foods play a crucial role in the Holi celebration. 

Also, some say that each colour holds a uniqueness and indicates specific emotions and grants people unity with bright colours. In other words, Holi marks the significance of sharing love and oneness. 

Well, as we all know the importance of colours in the festive time, we must think about our health too...

Yes, Holi is also about tasty food!
