Happy Holi to you Radhundi! On The Amazing Race last year, they did a challenge where they had to run through a crowd of holi partiers and find their clue - they were totally pelted with paint and dried chalk. It looks fun.

I worked with some people from India and each time they has a holiday they would educate us on it. Holi was always my favorite.

Happy Holi to everyone!

Hi Radhuni, hope you had a good holi. I remember as a child having a lot of fun.

The thing I hated though was water filled balloons coming from all directions. You never knew when one would land on you or on the floor and burst making you wet. They would hurt too.

I tried to steer clear of colors since they were extremely irritating to the eyes but in any case it was a lot of fun and it brings back some childhood memories of growing up in India.
