Modern Festivals With Holi Powder
You may have heard of Holi Festivals or seen the vibrant photos of people covered from head to toe in brightly colored powder, but always wondered what it was all about. Holi is an event that originated in India as a Hindu religious and cultural celebration. While The Festival of Colors has many traditions and legends associated with it, the condensed version is the celebration of Spring, rebirth and the triumph of good over evil. And what better way to celebrate than to throw color powders on each other!
