Hindu Festival of Holi – level 1

26-02-2018 15:00

Holi is a Hindu festival. People celebrate it every year. It happens on the last day of the full moon.

Holi is a symbol that good wins over evil. It is also the time when winter ends. To celebrate, people throw colourful powders. Women also throw sticks at me.

Everybody comes to the festival. It brings people together.

Difficult words: full moon (when you can see all of the moon), powder (dust, very soft sand), stick (a thin piece of wood).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
