Holi - The festival of colors

As many of you know I am fascinated with colors and they always find a way in my pottery. So it just made sense for me to post something about Holi.
Holi also known as the festival of colors is a Hindu festival celebrated on full moon day in the month of Phalguna. It celebrates Friendship and is enjoyed by throwing coloured powder(gulal) and coloured water at each other. On the eve of Holi, people light bonfires which symbolize burning of the evil and victory of the good. It is an oppurtunity for friends to get together and have fun eating Holi delicacies, drinking bhaang and playing with colors.

In some states in India, a pot of buttermilk is hung high on the street and boys form a human pyramid to reach the pot and break it, all while the women throw coloured water at them and sing folk songs.
