Tomato Holi is a traditional Holi game played in Nepal, particularly in the western region. In this game, tomatoes are used as a prop to play. On the first day, players throw tomatoes at each other, while on the second day, a pathway is created using tomatoes and players throw tomatoes at each other along that path.
The main objective of Tomato Holi is to have fun during the Holi festival and promote unity among people. This game is also used to clean the streets before the Holi festival. It is different from other games played during Holi because it involves the use of tomatoes and is followed by a Gaai Jatra celebration.
However, people who want to enjoy the festive spirit of Holi also like to play this game.
