Why is this guy grinning so big? It is because he is in the middle of smearing my face with color as I snapped this picture! I think his expression tells everything about the good mood everyone is in here today. It is the annual Holi Festival all across India. I don’t understand the significance, it has Hindu origins, but it seems to be sort of a combination of Mardi Gras, Thanksgiving, Halloween, and Easter all rolled into one. The departure from Easter is that you get colored, not the eggs!
