Visit an Orphanage or Old Aged Home
Firstly, have you ever thought about sharing your festival feelings with any needy people? Try it. You will get more happiness and much satisfaction than any other ways of celebration. All you need to do is, go to any orphanage or old aged home or any nearby area where needy people live, if possible, play Holi with them using natural colours.
Play some games to make them refreshed and happy. Share some food with them if you wish. This way of celebration leads our children to learn some life values from us as well as the philosophy of enjoyment and satisfaction turns true in life.
Get-together of Family, Friends, Relatives and Playing Games
Secondly, if you are living with a large family and there are members starting from younger to elders in your family, the best idea is to arrange story telling by elders about the history of celebrating Holi and quiz competition on the subject of Holi by using the historical characters and reasons behind celebrating the festival of Holi.
In this way, you need to prepare some questionnaires on the subject of Holi. You can arrange the celebration in the sequence of prayer, then storytelling, quiz, winner announcement, Holika Dahan, playing Dhuleti with natural colours or flowers, refreshment (breakfast/dinner/thandai) and depart.
This way of celebration not only gives enjoyment and excitement particularly to children as well as to all but also makes us and our children aware about our culture and history.
Attend or Host a Holi Party and Local Event
The third way is to go to parties and events which have already been organized by Amdavad’s resorts, clubs and event organizers with your family, friends, and relatives.
You can also arrange some singing competitions or Antakshari on songs of Holi if there are good singers or have a hobby of singing among the members.
You can also arrange playing games like Musical Chair, Dumb Charades, speaking ascending and descending numbers and there are more games if you search about them. Games give us enjoyment, excitement, activeness and refreshment.
Here are some other celebration ideas you can use for your Holi Party.
Dress Code: Wearing plain white or any other light colour outfits is a good idea for a Holi party dress code.
Playing Holi Songs: Celebration of Holi is incomplete without dancing on the popular Holi Song “Rang Barse Bheege Chunarwali” sung by Amitabh Bachchan. Here we’re suggesting a few playlists having Holi special songs so that you can get started with your musical Holi party in just a click.
Use Organic Colours Only: Use natural colours made from Flowers for your Holi celebration. These colours are safe and skin-friendly. You can also order natural Holi colours from Amazon.
Food and Drink: Holi celebration is incomplete without delicious food and Thandai. Serve delicacies like gol-gappa shots, pav bhaji, chole bhature and sugar-free gujiyas. Also arrange an assortment of drinks like Thandai, Lassi, mocktails and lemonades.
It doesn’t matter what we celebrate but it is most important how we celebrate it and what we are getting from it. Are we satisfied with our celebration, does it give enjoyment and fruitful outcomes?
