Behind the happy chaos of the Festival of Colors in India lie stories from a rich history of the triumph of good over evil, of gratitude and forgiveness, all shared in a family's evening of storytelling.

Leela and Aadi are excited to be in the lap of Mother Nature, the Himalayas fill their hearts with cheers of Holi. They join their grandparents for the celebration of Holi, the joyous festival of colors, and learn the source of the ritual bonfire, the vibrant colors, and stories of good overcoming evil.

There's more to the celebration of Holi in India than the riot of colors and playful chaos. Understanding the relevance of epic stories of Prahlad, Dhondha, and Putna make Aadi and Leela's Holi more meaningful. As they visit a farmer, they learn how Holi is also a celebration of thanking mother nature for giving us food. Even the differences in the ways different regions of India celebrate Holi are rooted in the value of community and harmony. My Holi gives the messages of loving one another, thanking Nature, and standing up for what is right.

Included are notes for Parents and Teachers with additional information for a well-rounded understanding of one of India's happiest holidays.
