Why Holi is celebrated

Choti Holi is celebrated  a night prior with rituals performing Holika  Dahan (burning of Holika) celebrating victory over evil. The mythology calls  it victory of Prahlada (devotee of Lord  Vishnu)  over Hiranyakashipu (who wanted to be worshiped as God).  The fire  is considered as  sacred which burns away all the  negative energies and evils.
