Holika Dahan is lit not only in villages and towns but also in cities at every street, square and crossroads. Holika Dahan takes place at the time when the winter season is passing and the summer season is coming. During this, there are rapid changes in the weather, due to which many types of bacteria that spread infection and disease are born. The bacteria present around that area are destroyed by the fire of Holika Dahan and this also reduces the risk of diseases.
On the other hand, there is importance of circumambulating the fire of Holika during Holika Dahan. In such a situation, while parikrama, the body temperature crosses 50 degrees and due to the heat of the fire, the body feels warm. This heat also destroys the bacteria and germs present in the body.
Before Holi, people also clean their house and due to the cleanliness of the house, the bacteria in the dust and soil present in the house are also eliminated. In Hinduism, there is importance of cleaning every corner on special festivals. Cleaning of normal days, this dirt cannot be cleaned only by sweeping and mopping.
