When Holashtak Begins?

The first day of Holashtak period comes on Ashtami (eighth day) of Shukla Paksha in Phalgun (according to Hindi calendar) month. The day announces the arrival of the festival of colors- Holi.

This year, March 14, 2019 is the date that has marked the welcome note for the colorful festival.

What is Holashtak?

The period of eight days is said Holashtak that has started on March 14, 2019. These days come as a probation period for any auspicious event or ceremony like housewarming function, mundan-sanskar or marriage.
