Holi is a festival of color celebrated by Hindus in India and Nepal. It is a fun festival that celebrates the arrival of spring. There is also a religious back story to it. You can read more about it here. It was my favorite holiday as a child growing up in India. All the kids in the neighborhood had epic water gun fights. We also used to throw color on unsuspecting people and no was allowed to get mad. It is definitely a mischievous holiday. In Canada Holi is more low key. There are temples that allow people to throw color on each other but since it is still cold, very few people use water guns. Anyhow, I will be having a Holi Dinner with my family.
I leave you with a Bollywood song that celebrates Holi. I will go back to writing regular posts tomorrow.
