Holika Puja is performed on the day before Holi. According to legend, Hiranyakashipu fed up and angry with his son, Prahlad’s devotion for Lord Vishnu, asked his sister, Holika, to help him to kill his own son, since Hiranyakashipu considered Lord Vishnu as his enemy. Holika tried to burn Prahalad by setting up a bon fire and having Prahalad sit on her lap in hopes that he will be consumed by the fire. With Lord Vishnu watching over Prahalad, Holika burns to death from the fire and Prahalad remains unharmed. Since then this occasion is celebrated as Holika Dahan.
This occasion signifies marking an end to all the evil thoughts and getting rid of all the sins. On this occasion, one receives the blessings of Mother Holika to overcome and get rid of any problems, obstacles that one may face in life and also grants one’s wishes.
