Holi is a popular Hindu festival which is popularly known as the "festival of spring" or the "festival of colors”. This also marks the end of winters in India and is a welcome to the spring season. Legend says, the devil named Hiranyakashipu tried killing his son with the help of her sister Holika, because he was a devotee of Lord Vishnu. Holika tried to burn him but due to her evilness her powers became ineffective and she was burned to ashes instead. To celebrate the good over evil, people apply colors and throw water balloons at each other. On such an auspicious festival, laddus is one of the most popular Holi sweets.
