Holi is a half religious festival. Once it was celebrated as a religious festival and the myth behind it was that once Vishnu had killed an Asura named Holika. Later it was celebrated with the myth that Krishna played colors with his lover Radhika or Radha. Now it is played mainly as a spring festival and it is very widely celebrated in North India while it is not celebrated in South India at all . Bhixma's search is great. He should be praised for his inquisitive talent
