Colours Of Holi & Indian Vintage Furniture

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

India is a country of vibrant colours and nowhere is colour celebrated more than it will be  with the arrival of spring and the accompanying bright colours in the festival of  Holi, a Hindu spring festival that takes place today and tomorrow.

Holi celebrations start this evening with a Holika bonfire where people gather, sing, dance and party. Tomorrow is Rangwali Holi a free-for-all carnival of colours, where everyone chases each other and colour each other with dry powder and coloured water, water guns and coloured water-filled balloons for their water fight. Everyone gets involved friends, family and total strangers in houses, streets, parks and outside temples.
