What is Holi or the Festival of Colors?

Holi is a Hindu festival that takes place in the spring, and is celebrated largely in India and Nepal, but has also become popular throughout the world.

The festival signifies the victory of good over evil, the arrival of spring, end of winter, and for many a festive day to meet others, play and laugh, forget and forgive, and repair broken relationships, and is also celebrated as a thanksgiving for a good harvest. (Wikipedia: Holi)

The festival is celebrated in various ways according to location, culture, and tradition.

One of our favorites is the Festival of Colors held in Spanish Fork, Utah at the Krishna Temple.

The festival draws 50,000-75,000 visitors each year, and is a blast of color and free hugs.
