"...people light a bonfire, called Holika on the eve of Holi festival and celebrate the victory of good over evil and also the triumph of devotion to god," the site explains.
Color, as can be seen from the video above, play a crucial role in the festivities, the site says.
"Bright colours of gulal and abeer fill the air and people take turns in pouring colour water over each other."
The video is enough to make you want to book your ticket for Salt Lake City in 2013.
