Festival of Colors (Just slightly late)

So, I'm a little late on this post. Only by a month or so. I actually forgot I had these. But, this year's Festival of Colors, or Holi, was great! Holi, in case you are not familiar, is the "Hindu spring festival. It is held on the full-moon day of Phalguna (February–March) and celebrated with reckless abandon. All distinctions of caste, age, sex, and status are disregarded. Participants throw coloured powders on each other, and street celebrations are noisy and riotous. The festival is especially associated with the worship of Krishna, and it is considered an imitation of his play with the wives and daughters of the cowherds" (http://www.merriam-webster.com/). Here in Utah, the main festival takes place at the Sri Sri Radha Krishna Temple in Spanish Fork. If you havent been, you have to check it out at least once in your life! You will not be disappointed.
