While Holi festival starts in the evening of full moon in Phalgun (March) with a bonfire, school children start celebrating holi right after school break.  It is a tradition for most students in school to play Holi just at the end of the school day before Holi festival.  The same tradition is carried on in offices, wholesale markets and other public gatherings.  People usually wear old clothes and carry a packet of Gulal, dry color powder and greet others by simmering some on the face of people who they know usually coworkers or classmates.  Some offices close early and organize a Holi party.
