This is how you celebrate the start of spring – the Festival of Colours

Holi is a popular springtime celebration that takes place on the last full moon of the lunar month. And it just so happened to start on St. Patrick’s Day (so extra partying for those that celebrate both!). The Holi festivities begin with bonfires and prayers, and then celebrations that include coloured water being squirted onto people and coloured powder being thrown into the streets. Seriously, if there’s any festival I’d rather go to, it’s this one in India!
