Holi is a Short form of Holika....was the Sister of Hiranyakashipu(father of Prahalad)....She had a power that Fire cannot burn her...So as Prahalad was Bhakt of GOD....Hirnaykashipu did not like it...so he planned to Vanish his Son...and for that He told Holika to sit on Fire with his Son Prahlad in her Lap!!!....But due to the Grace of GOD...Prahalad was alive and Holika was gone to the ashes......!! In Rememberence of this Story...we celebrate Holi (The Day before Rang Panchami) !!: ))
