Oh I wish I was in India. The Holi festival celebrated by the Hindus marks the end of winter and the coming of spring and also commemorates the victory of good over evil. To commemorate Lord Krishna, a god who defeated a demon and liked to pull pranks, people throw colored pigment at each other. The throwing of the muti colored pigment also signifies equality.
Its a day to give each other happiness, love and a great big burst of color pigment in the face!
I love it!
