The Festival of Colors is a rite of spring celebrated in India and many other countries around the world where Hinduism is favored. Holi is a mix celebration of people throwing colored water and colored powder at each other. Bonfires rage all through the day before Holi.

The power-throwing day is celebrated on the first full moon of the month of Phalungna, normally February or March. You missed it this year: Holi day was March 11.
