I just happened upon these photos of the Holi festival in India and it looks so fun. They take celebrating spring to a whole new level, making painting eggs look like child’s play. Those colors look delicious. I want to go to there.

from Wikiepedia:
Holi,ھولی also called the Festival of Colours, is a popular Hindu spring festival. Holi has certain perennial rituals attached to it, the first is the smearing of coloured powder on each other, and throwing water, coloured and scented using pichkaris, shaped like giant syringes or squirt guns.
Holi is a festival of radiance (Teja) in the universe. During this festival, different waves of radiance traverse the universe, thereby creating various colours that nourish and complement the function of respective elements in the atmosphere.
