"Holi (also known as Dol JatraBasantotsav) is the Hindu festival of colors. It is celebrated at the end of the winter season, on the last full moon day of the lunar month Phalguna. In 2012, Holi will be celebrated on March 8.  Holi is observed with great fanfare by Hindus all over the world. Holi celebrations begin on the eve of the festival with bonfires and prayers. On the day of Holi, people throw colored powder and liquids at each other. A common greeting during this time is, "Happy Holi.""

I have the wonderful opportunity to go to a Holi festival near my hometown in Utah and it is such a wonderful experience. This year the festival will be on the 24th of March and I am already getting ready for it and will definitely be posting all of the pictures of the event on my blog. Hope you have the opportunity to go to a festival as well.
