Holi (phagwah) AKA The Festival of Colours was celebrated this week. The hindu holiday is celebrated in places like India, the US, and also Guyana where the religion is prevalent. Because it’s celebrated in Guyana, that means my mom used to celebrate it when she was younger. She mostly remembers people throwing what she referred to as “bombs” of coloured powder at her while she walked the streets for a few days, and she would get in trouble by her grandmother for her clothes getting so dirty, but she also remembered it being fun. I’ve wanted to try this, so I think this is getting added to my bucket list!! 🙂
