Reason 25: Holi Festival of Colors

"In India, Holi announces the arrival of spring and the passing of winter. The festival breathes an atmosphere of social merriment. People bury their hatchets with a warm embrace and throw their worries to the wind. Every nook and corner presents a colorful sight. Young and old alike are covered with colors (red, green, yellow, blue, black and silver). People in small groups are seen singing, dancing and throwing colors on each other."

This was so much fun.  Lots of pictures tonight.  I was ecstatic that Jason was able to come for this!
Jason at the Lotus (Hindu) Temple of the Utah Krishnas.  LOTS of people.  

The chalk throwing begins!  My camera was in a ziploc baggie.
We were pretty messy :)

Our whole group- Danni, Lucas, Skyler, Jocelyn, Spencer, Kelsi, me, Jason, 
Joe, Hanna, Lindsey, and Maren. 
And naturally a cloud of pink chalk flew in front of us. 

Me and Linz.  Lindsey looked like an Avatar!  

After spraying air to get the chalk remnants off.

My eye.  I thought it looked much greener than normal.

My eyes looked weird.  

So yes- that was the Holi Festival of Colors 2010.  It was an absolute blast!
