Festival of Colors

In India, and other countries with large Hindu populations, an annual festival called Holi takes place.  It is celebrated at the end of the winter season on the last full moon day of the lunar month, (in 2011 it was on March 19th).   Also knows as the Festival of Colors, Holi is a welcoming of Spring, as well as a celebration of good prevailing over evil.  How wonderful!
