The Hindu festival of Holi brings out the wildest, the loudest, and the most colorful celebration imaginable in India or anywhere else. Crowds fill the streets as brightly colored powder and water fill the air.
Holi, also called the Festival of Colors, is celebrated with much enthusiasm on the full moon day in the month of Phalgun, which usually corresponds to the month of March. It marks the arrival of spring and the bright colors represent energy, life, and joy. The festival is also associated with the immortal love of Krishna and Radha, so in Mathura, the birth place of Lord Krishna, this day is also celebrated with a special puja, or prayer, the traditional custom of worshipping Lord Krishna, and an even greater exuberance.
