Holi (Festival of Colors) – India and Nepal
END OF FEBRUARY OR EARLY MARCH.
CAN’T YOU NARROW DOWN THE LOCATION FOR US A BIT MORE?
Holi, or the Festival of Colour, as it has come to be known, is primarily a Hindu festival and it’s celebrated with wild parties and crazy colour fights all over India and Nepal in areas with large Hindu populations. You’ll know you’ve found one when you spot the revellers who look like they’ve walked through a rainbow waterfall.
A COLOUR FIGHT?
Holi is a celebration of the victory of one’s inner good over evil but has basically become a frolicking free-for-all involving coloured powder and water. In a joyous and raucous street fight, participants throw powder and water at each other using the bright, exuberant colours to signify the start of spring, the power of love, and the generosity of humanity.
SOUNDS LIKE SOME SERIOUSLY MESSY FUN.
Just try to resist the truly jubilant spirit of the festival – everyone, and we mean everyone, comes together to play, laugh, forgive and give thanks. What’s not to like?
