We all look forward to ways of celebrating Holi, right? And if you were wondering how to celebrate Holi at home this year, we’ve got you!

Lighting The Holika

The first step to getting into the Holi spirit is by making the Holi fire. Collect multiple wooden sticks and stack them up together to make a bonfire. Call all your friends and family and light it up. If you’re younger than 18, then please ask an adult to do it. This ritual is performed a day before the actual Holi day and is also known as Choti Holi (Small Holi). This is best way to celebrate holi.


Preparing For Holi

The next step is to prepare for Holi. What are your plans to celebrate holi? Will you be celebrating it at home or at a friend’s house? Prepare accordingly.

At Home:

If you have people coming to your place, then make sure that you have enough food and beverages for all of them. 

Keep some dry colour handy so that if anyone comes empty-handed, three’s more than enough for everybody.

At BFF’s Place:

If you’re planning to celebrate Holi with your girls, then make sure you are well prepared. Choose an outfit that you wouldn’t mind throwing away.

Carry some dry colours, water balloons, water sprays ‘coz more the merrier!

PS: Who knew that celebrating Holi virtually can be so fun?

Send Each Other Colours

We agree that being intimate with people is not the best idea RN but that doesn’t mean that you cannot play Holi. If your friend is sitting halfway across the world, then it’s time to make them feel at home. Send a care package and include some Holi essentials such as dry colours. And of course, you always have a video call to play Holi virtually with all your loved ones. 

Order Their Fave Food Items

Nothing pleases a person other than food. And if you truly love your BFFs, then get their fave food items delivered to their place and have a virtual feast! It can be something as basic as a burger or some #HoiSpecial dishes like mithais. This way you can celebrate holi virtually.

Have Contests And Games

Another great holi celebration idea – Have a virtual pawri with your BFFs. And instead of just catching up, play games. Snakes and ladders, crosswords, Among Us– there are so many ways to have fun online. You can also play antakshari, Hollywood-Bollywood and even dumb charades with your best pals.
