    It was believed Hiranyakashipu a hard hearted and evil King decided to kill his own son as he refused to worship him. He asked his sister 'Holika', who was immune to fire, to sit on a pyre of fire with Prahalad in her lap. Actually they plan to burn Prahalad. But their plan did not go through as Prahalad who was reciting the name of Lord Vishnu throughout was safe, but Holika got burnt to ashes. The defeat of Holika signifies the burning of all that is bad. After this, Lord Vishnu killed Hiranyakashipu. It is actually the death of Holika that is associated with Holi.
