Holi Festival

This March 27, millions of people will gleefully splatter each other with brightly colored powders and water in celebration of Holi, a centuries-old Hindu holy day. The annual ritual, also known as the Festival of Colors, is observed mostly in northern India, but in recent years has been embraced by non-Hindu fans of multihued fun from Australia to Utah.
