Holika Dahan is one of the Hindu religious rituals while celebration of the holi festival. Holika Dahan is celebrated after the death of Holika and protection of Prahlad. Holika Dahan is always held at evening or night time as per the Hindu calendar. Hindu people roast the “Jau” in the Holika fire and bring them to their homes for the goodness and well being of the family members. Also are burnt 5 “Upali” in the fire denoting that as burning all their problems.

Holika was given a boon by Lord Brahma that she would never be harmed by fire. There was a time when Holika sat on a bonfire with Prahlad on the orders of her brother and Prahlad's father "Hiranyakashipu" so that Prahlad gets killed but instead as Prahlad was a great devotee of Lord Vishnu, the fire did no harm to him and Holika was burnt alive.
