Shubh Holi Hai! ; Happy Holi is here! There is no holiday more vibrant nor more colorful than the fabulous two-day Hindu festival of Holi. Celebrated on the last full moon day of the last lunar month of the Winter season, the festival marks a welcome return of Spring. To commemorate the day, color – “the brighter the better” – is flung wholeheartedly, with abandon, everywhere.
Fluorescent powders are tossed like confetti, with gusto. Water in neon hues is splashed and sprayed, sloshed from buckets and squirted through water pistols. In the evening, bright, festive bonfires crackle and throw sparks.
The incredible color and the playful splashing, shaking, and spraying of it, is absolutely inspiring.
