Holi welcomes the spring and the summer and it is celebrated in most South Asian countries. It is official holiday in Nepal. Holi in Nepal starts one week before the main day of Holi. There is a tradition of erecting a long bamboo stick (lingo) covered with pieces of different color cloths (Chir) in Bashantapur Durbar square, Kathmandu. In the eve of Holi the lingo is taken down and the Chir is burnt. The event is called Chir Haran or Holika Dahan. Holi then starts. Now, in Nepal there are only two days celebrations. It is an old celebration, dating at least to the 16th century, but most likely much, much older.
