Why do we celebrate Holi with colors?

The reason behind celebrating Holi with colors comes from Lord Krishna era. The colors became the part of the Holi festival celebration to commemorate the love of Krishna and Radha.  According to mythology, Lord Krishna got the blue color skin because of the poison given to him by the demon Putna. Krishna had an inferiority complex and had doubts that Radha will like him because of his dark skin tone. He feared that Radha might not talk to him due to the colour difference between both of them.  So, Yashoda, mother of Lord Krishna suggested him to ask Radha to paint his face with any color of her choice. Radha colored Krishna’s face, and since then they became a couple.
