Holi is the seasonal festival which celebrates the month of falgun and the coming of spring. Holi is a festival of colours. At midnight, before the festival, great bonfires are made and coconuts and seasonal fruits are offered to the fire. Though any sweets can be eaten on this festival, some are typical. Sugar batashas or garlands of sugar discs are worn by merrymakers who throw colours at each other as a sign of rejuvenation and joy.
