Today we went to our first Holi celebration. We showed up, ready for a bit of fun and left completely coated in the beautiful powder and a bit of mud because, well, it’s us. It was an absolute blast.
It just happened to be the warmest day of the year so far, which was fitting for a celebration of spring. The mood was light and playful. We bought an excessive amount of colored powder bags and set off into the crowd. We threw, spread and sprinkled the powder and it was obvious that the kids loved every second of it.
The best part was strolling back downtown, pretty far from the celebration to grab lunch. Being the only ones in sight covered from head to toe in neon colors was pretty amusing. We received some fantastic looks. I don’t think we’ll ever miss another Holi celebration!
