Holi

It's been nearly two months since we've been back from India, and while I don't miss the smells or the mosquitoes, I do really miss the crazy beautiful festivals like Holi.



This video stole my breath away. As far as humankind goes, I think Holi is maybe the greatest celebration we've ever come up with. Have any of you ever been a part of any Holi celebrations?

  13. I think Holi is so beautiful. I have not participated in a celebration myself but my friend who was enchanted with the idea of celebrating the colors of spring made up her own celebration last year. She set up a picnic dinner in her living room for her and her husband and they ate under a rainbow night light and burned scented candles and incense. It was a simple way of acknowledging an occasion that she had not participated in before but really admired. I like the idea of doing something similar with my family with holidays that i did not grow up with but would like to acknowledge.
