Hi, Thanks for the great article! The Holi festival has a cultural significance among various Hindu traditions of the Indian subcontinent
You guys are looking super awesome. I missed the opportunity since I went in November.
I had been to India but didn’t get a chance to play Holi. I would love to be a part of this colorful festival.
Welcome to India! We are glad you had fun.
I also want to share a folklore behind this festival. A day before the colorful celebration, at night you might have encountered a pyre and people praying around it.
It is to commemorate the demise of “HOLIKA,” an evil aunt of PRAHLAD, a young child and a follower of Lord Vishnu. HOLIKA took the child along with her in the pyre in order to kill him, but because of the grace of god, instead of child, she burnt to death.
The people were happy to get rid of an evil person and the next day played colors to cherish the peace they found. 🙂
Guys, if you happen to visit India again, also try to attend the Holi in Vrindavan. They play with flowers and the aura is too great.
I just love holi and my indian friends thanks for the article

I’ve seen some pictures from this event, but never actually read the description of the event (and what happen with the paint cleaning) like this. Looks like so much fun!!

Everyone was getting so angry with the paint, and I was thinking “What a blast that would be!” Reminds of when you two went to the water festival…Holy Moly, lol It’s great to see you so thrilled and with such a zest for life. Miss you guys, but SEE YOU SOON! xo
It reminded us of the water festival too except much dirtier. Walking in the water mixed with cow crap wasn’t too much fun:-)
