March 28 is an auspicious day according to the Hindu calendar. The day marks the beginning of one of the most important Hindu festivals i.e. Holi. On Sunday, people will not only celebrate Holika Dahan but will also keep a fast in lieu of Vasant Poornima.
Those who keep fast on this day take bath early in the morning before the sunrise and clean their homes and temple. Following this, they adorn the Lord Vishnu and Goddess Lakshmi with new clothes and ornaments and offer them flowers, fruits and home-made traditional sweets.
In the evening a sacred bonfire is lit and the puja for Holika Dahan is performed. To do this puja people use water, gulaal, wheat grain and other items. In order to perform the puja all these items are put in the fire while doing parikrama one by one.
