Who knew? I have a holiday??
(Thanks to my old HS friend Marc, without whom I might have never known.)
“Inspired by a celebration of peace and love marked across South Asia, Holi is a colourful festival all can enjoy.” (from this article)
“Mythologically and socially also, the two days celebrated as Holi – March 1 and 2 – have great significance.
While the first day is also observed as Holika Dahan, signified as the victory of good over evil;
There is also an interesting story of Lord Krishna that’s said to have formed the genesis of the festival of colours.” (from the article below)
Well this sounds like a holiday I can totally enjoy.
