Colorful Google Logo For Holi

Today on Google's home page in India, the United States, Canada, the UK and some other regions is a special Google Doodle, a special Google logo, for Holi, a Hindu spring festival celebrated in the Indian subcontinent, also known as the "festival of colors".

It is celebrated and most recognized by everyone spraying colored powder solutions at each other and not getting upset about it.

So Google's Doodle shows just that.

Google describes the Doodle:

Red, yellow, blue, and green are a few of our favorite colors all year round, but today we’re putting them front and center for an extra special reason.

It’s time for Holi — the age-old festive ritual marking the end of winter, the coming of spring, and symbolically, the triumph of good over evil. Family and friends come together to feast, dance, and laugh together while dousing each other with colored powder and water.

Today’s Guest Doodle by Amrita Marino depicts dhol players amongst a cloud of color. These traditional drummers move from house to house, adding a peppy, musical touch to the day's festivities. The four main powder colors carry with them a piece of symbolism. Red signifies love and fertility; yellow is the color of turmeric, a natural remedy; blue represents the beloved Krishna; green symbolizes spring and new beginnings.

Whether you choose one favorite color or many, here’s wishing everyone a happy Holi!

Happy Holi to all our readers who enjoy the day!
