Acho que ia gostar de ir, quem é que não se delicia a atirar coisas aos outros? E se essas coisas, forem tintas, das mais variadas cores, que salpicam e sujam a roupa toda ;) ainda melhor!!
The festival of Colors is a celebration of Spring and the triumph of good over evil, on the eve of the full moon falling in late February or March, by people in India and other countries with large Hindu populations, as well as other religions. The biggest one happens in the Hare Krishna Temple in Spanish Fork, Utah. This is held over two days and estimates from this year (2012) claim nearly 80,000 attended over the two days.
It must be fun spending time just throwing colored powder and water at each other.. don't you think?
"Every year, Hindus greet the turn of winter into spring with a splash of color - in some areas, a geyser of color. They call their celebration the festival of Holi, and Hindus across India and throughout the world share prayer, camaraderie, special food, and a general sense of mischief as they douse each other in dyes and colored water. The large festival has roots to many Hindu legends associated with the triumph of good over evil. One of the best-known stories tells the tale of the demoness Holika, who tried to kill Prahlad, the son of the demon king Hiranyakashyap, for refusing to worship his father. Instead, Holika is consumed in flames, which is replayed each year with bonfires and effigies, before the celebrants break out the hues and cries of the festival" in boston.com
