On the 11th of March, I went to an event called "Holi fest" or "The Festival of colors," with a friend from high school. "Holi fest" is an Indian event celebrating the beauty of human life and nature. At this festival, you throw colorful sand at everyone around you while cheerfully shouting "Happy Holi!" There are water games and spicy food too!
I had never heard of this kind of event until my friend had told me about it, so I was a little nervous about whether or not I'd actually enjoy it, but in the end, it was amazingly fun! People kind of stared at us at first, but as the day went on, we were able to join in on all the games. We started off just throwing sand at everyone, but when a guy shot us with the hose, we purchased water guns and retaliated.
I'm seriously glad I chose to wear old clothes to this event. Everyone was throwing lots of sand at us and we ended up getting pretty dirty. My shoes and shirt are still stained!
We definitely want to go again!
