The Holi celebration in India begins by burning the Old wood and stick as a replica of effigies of Holika (demoness) sister of demon king Harnaksyap. The hatred towards demoness is ACTUALLY resentment against evil thoughts and pride which is acknowledged in the mythological story where Holika turns to burn her own nephew Prahalad. In an agony of feeling scornful when the little Prahalad refuses to worship her brother Harnakhsyap instead of his deity Vishnu, she tried to burn him through some bad tactics, but Prahalad was saved because of his belief in a god or in goodness.
The next day is celebrated to remember the eternal love of Lord Krishna and his bae Radha.
