Holika Dahan is done on the full moon of the month of Phalgun to commemorate the victory of good over evil. According to legend, Lord Prahlad, the son of Asura Hiranyakashyap

He was an ardent devotee of Vishnu, but Hiranyakashyap did not like this at all. He entrusted his sister Holika with the task of dissuading the child Prahlad from devotion to God, who had the boon that fire could not burn his body. Aiming to kill Bhaktaraj Prahlad, Holika entered the fire with him in her arms. But due to the glory of Prahlad’s devotion and God’s grace, Holika herself was burnt in the fire. Prahlad’s body was not harmed by the fire. Since then Holika Dahan is completed on the first day of Holi.

The Holi festival is celebrated differently in all parts of the country. In the Malwa region of Madhya Pradesh, Rangpanchami is celebrated on the fifth day of Holi, which is played more loudly than the main Holi. Holi is celebrated with pomp in the Braj region. As Lathmar Holi is played in Barsana. Holi is also celebrated for 15 days in Mathura and Vrindavan. In Haryana, it is a tradition to torture the brother-in-law by the sister-in-law on Holi. In Maharashtra, it is a tradition to play Holi with dry Gulal on Rang Panchami. Holi is the biggest festival of the tribals of South Gujarat. Folk songs are very popular in Chhattisgarh and Holi is known as Bhagoriya in Malvanchal.
