Holi is upon us!  The festival signifies the victory of good over evil, the arrival of spring and the end of winter, and a festive day to meet others, play and laugh, forget and forgive, and repair broken relationships.  Holi celebrations start on the night before Holi with a Holika Dahan where people gather, perform religious rituals in front of the bonfire, and pray that their internal evil be destroyed. 

On Thursday, March 17th, join Gujarati Society of Central Florida as we celebrate Holi starting with the Holika Bonfire.  This event is  OPEN TO PEOPLE OF ALL COMMUNITIES.  Please be sure to bring a Puja Thali with coconut as we signify Holi with puja rituals. The event will take place at Shree Jalaram Mandir at 7:00pm. Dinner will be served thereafter.  So, please join us and invite all of your family and friends!
