Holi

Holi begins tonight! Also known as the "Festival of Colors," Holi is a popular Hindu festival that celebrates the arrival of spring, and the triumph of good over evil.

People all over the world gather together to feast, dance, pray, and light bonfires. Another Holi tradition is a mischievous activity called “playing colors.” People of all ages run through the streets throwing brightly colored body paint on each other. The game continues until everyone is covered from head to toe in the colors of love and life.

Take part in the great celebration of Holi and give your loved ones special gifts that show your love and respect. Happy Holi!
