Holi

March

Holi is a two-day festival that celebrates the victory of good over evil, as well as the abundance of the spring harvest season. It's commonly referred to as the "Festival of Colors." People exuberantly throw colored powder and water all over each other, have parties, and dance under water sprinklers. Bhang (a paste made from cannabis plants) is traditionally consumed during the celebrations. Holi is a very carefree festival and great fun to participate in if you don’t mind getting wet and dirty.
