Holi Festival Experience in Manila!

I’ve been seeing a lot of posts on social media of people with their full smile with dyed colors on their faces and shirt for the past years.

I tried to google it once, and found out that this is actually an Indian Festival called Holi! I thought it was just a party where people throw color powder on one another. But when I got the chance to attend the Holi festival this year, I realized it’s more than that.

Holi Festival is a celebration in India for the arrival of Spring. It has its story and history associated with their Hindu gods but now, the festival is being celebrated all over the world as a symbol of love and positivity. Of course, this festivity has been embraced by the Philippines, not only because of the growing Indian communities in the country but because of its positive message to the world – as the festival of love and color.
