Today is the day that India/Hindus celebrate Holi. Traditionally this day marks the beginning of spring and it is highlighted by the "festival of color". The people will gather in public locations outside and "bless" each other with "gifts" of colorful paint and/or powder bombs.
Today I decided to have my AP Human Geography class reenact this tradition but instead of throwing the color at each other we just threw it at the pile of clothing on the ground. So my WHITE shirt that I wore to school today has become a colorful tapestry flavored by Hawaiian Punch and accented by food color.
The kids loved it and we had fun. Check out this YouTube video clip from the movie Outsourced for an example of how Holi is celebrated: Holi in Outsourced.
Keep roaming those remote roads and observing new celebrations!
