Why You Should Be Celebrating Holi This Year

Written by Alexia Dellner

Holi, also known as the festival of colours, is the fun and happy Hindu festival that marks the coming of Spring and the triumph of good versus evil.

More importantly, it’s a time for dancing, singing, and the throwing of coloured powder and water!

This year the main day of Holi falls on Monday, March 17th and judging from the pictures below – it’s going to be amazing!
