Transcript of Holi Festival of Colors

Holi Festival of Colors
Holi is a popular festival Hindu. It celebrates in spring in India Guyana and Nepal.
The king Hiranyakashipu had an evil sister, her name was Joliká.
She thought that she was the unique person in the world with powers and the slaves had to adore her.
Holi is celebrated one day before the stake.
It is for 16 days.
The Hiranyakashipu's son didn't want to adore to his father and his sister, he followed Vishnu and her aunt decided to kill him but Vishnu took care him.

His aunt was burnt in the stake.
The stake was the victory about
good over evil.
My dear, we have to go to India, because the most festival is going to start in spring.
Yeah, I know but the festival means the love for the other people.

Also they make us a potion, that sometimes it's only cannabis and I heard that the last year the festival only was for three days because India had many expenses.
Only three days? It´s fantastic, when will you buy the tickets to travel?
Yeah, the third day they listened electric music.
Friend, we are in September, the festival is in March I ´ll buy the tickets the next year
Well, I´ll wait the next year and I can earn money.
They waited the festival and they traveled to India and now they are always speaking about the HOLI FESTIVAL OF COLORS.
