Happy Holi! Here’s how we’re celebrating at

Celebrated as winter turns into spring, Holi is the Hindu “festival of colors.” In addition to celebrating the dawn of Spring, Holi is also a celebration of good prevailing over evil, illustrated through the Hindu story of Hiranyakashipu, an ancient King who demanded to be worshiped as a God and was ultimately slain by the Hindu God Vishnu—a sacred example of good triumphing evil. 

Today, people honor Holi in a variety of ways. Many use the day as an opportunity to let go of any negative energy they’re holding so they can start fresh in spring. There are also Holi festivals, complete with bonfires, music, sweets, and what’s arguably the most well-known Holi tradition—throwing brightly colored powder and water at other festival-goers.
