Celebrated primarily in India and Nepal, Holi is the Hindu celebration of spring. Although the impetus for Holi is rooted in Hindu tradition and mythology, the festivities involved for this particular holiday are one of the very reasons for its awesomeness. Each spring, Holi celebrators take to the streets for an explosive bout of revelry that involves spraying one another with handfuls of colored pigments and perfume. Easter pays homage to the colors of spring through colored eggs and vibrant jelly beans, but in all honesty, Holi seems to take the cake in terms of color and fun.
