Prime Minister Anthony Albanese has extended his heartfelt Holi greetings to the diverse Australian community.

“Happy Holi, Australia!” his message began, echoing with the vibrancy and spirit of the festival. “Holi is a joyful celebration of colour, love, and new life. The message of renewal through the triumph of good over evil is an inspiration for all Australians.”

With genuine admiration for the cultural significance of Holi, Prime Minister Albanese acknowledged its importance to many Australians of South Asian heritage. “For many Australians of South Asian heritage, Holi’s cultural and religious significance brings people together in celebration of their shared faith, history, and heritage.”

Reflecting on his own experience, Prime Minister Albanese shared memories of his honoured participation in Holi celebrations in Ahmedabad, India.

“I was honoured to celebrate Holi in Ahmedabad, India, last year, and to experience the spectacular display of music, colour, and traditional dancing that define this lively tradition.”

Encouraging Australians to embrace the festivities in their own unique ways, he concluded his message in an official statement with warmth and optimism. “However you mark the occasion this year – whether you gather with family and friends, eat, sing, dance, or play with gulaal – I trust you will have a wonderful time.”

Holi, revered as the Festival of Colours, Love, and Spring, stands as a cherished and significant Hindu celebration. Observed to herald the arrival of spring, Holi is celebrated in India, Nepal, and among the diaspora community.
