Dhulendi Holi, also known as Dhulandi Holi or Dhuleti Holi, is the festival of colours and joy celebrated with pomp and gaiety in Haryana during Falgun Purnima. In 2017, Dhulandi Holi date is March 13.
In Haryana, the festival marks the family function celebrated especially between bhabhi (brothers wife) and devar (husbands younger brother). On this day, bhabhi is sanctioned to play their tricks on her husbands brothers. Special recipes are made on the festival day to bump up the joy.
Breaking dahi handi or a pot of curd or buttermilk hung in the streets is another attractive tradition during which a large number of people gather to see and play Dhulendi.
